Hackers can Access your data

Online criminals access your IT Infrastructure with the use of problem solving skills.

With every hacker is a unique solution to a problem. Unscrupulous their cause may be but hackers are creative intelligent people.

We all thought Marcus Hutchins won the battle when he brought down Wanna Decryptor.

The war was not over. He immediately had to defend against a cyber-assault on the ‘kill switch’ he just implemented.

Using a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack – hackers launched an onslaught of traffic on the domain Marcus set up in the aim of making Wanna Decryptors attempts to contact the domain go unanswered.

This would have de-activated the kill switch and released the ransomware to let it run amok.

200,000 organizations in 150 countries and many more have Hutchins to thank for his level of expertise in implementing preventive measures to protect the domain from DDoS attacks.

Marcus is a hacker who fights the good fight. He thinks like a hacker. He understands how hackers think.

Your businesses needs support from people like Marcus. Fighting your fight. On your side. Testing your defenses. Exposing your weaknesses. Better preparing your business for worst-case scenarios.

Understanding how hackers think should be your first line of defence.
