Middle-Market Beware: Ransomware Isn’t Just for Enterprises

  • August 2, 2016

Ransomware is used by hackers as a form of cyberwarfare, for personal financial gain, or for activism. This was recently portrayed in the season premiere of Mr. Robot, in which a hugely powerful company was publicly humiliated by such an attack.

It’s a potential scenario that keeps enterprise tech executives up at night – I’m sure more than a few CTOs and CISOs had a hard time sleeping after watching this episode, even though it is fictional. However, middle-market tech executives tend to be less worried.

It’s not that they don’t think about it, they just think a hacker is less likely to target a smaller organization with less revenue and fewer valuable assets. This is exactly why they are more vulnerable.
