Secure your cloud
Cloud Security | Protection against phishing and ransomware
Your network is most likely deployed in the cloud: all company emails are stored there, along with a significant portion (if not all) of your data. Today, hackers are increasing attacks in the cloud, which is why all companies should be careful to keep their cloud secure, including protecting against phishing and ransomware .
Cloud computing: security above all else
Cloud computing allows data to be transmitted over the Internet and stored on servers located sometimes outside Canada, which is not without risk, among other things because the data is subject to the laws of the country where it is located and not to Canadian ones.
You are responsible
Since you can use the cloud to store various data concerning your business, but also that of your customers, in the event of a leak, hack, fraud or other malicious act, the law could hold you responsible. It goes without saying that it is in your best interests to ensure that you have an adequate security system.
According to the Institut de la statistique du Québec, in 2018, 50% of companies with 50 to 249 employees used cloud computing, while this figure climbed to more than 70% for those with 250 or more employees. And the popularity of cloud computing is not about to run out of steam!

Email security: beyond SPAM
Email security, of course, depends on effective spam filtering (SPAM), but primarily on adequate protection against phishing, the repercussions of which can be devastating for a business.
Specialty insurer Beazley claims that 24% of reported IT incidents are the result of business email attacks.
Email is used extensively by hackers to deploy their various phishing strategies. By sending malicious emails, they attempt to extract personal information (full name, social insurance number, credit card number, password, etc.) for fraudulent purposes.
Protect yourself against phishing
Would you like to know who your employees are most at risk of falling into the trap in order to make them aware of the danger?
Ransomware is one of the most popular phishing strategies, and people and businesses fall victim to it and pay a heavy price every day.
Ransomware, a plague
Ransomware often takes the form of an email with a clickable link or an attachment which, once opened, allows the perpetrator to take the data of his victim's network hostage: the perpetrator then demands a ransom in exchange. from which he "undertakes" to give the victim back access to his data.
When your system is held hostage, unfortunately, it will be difficult for you to find all your data on your own. Faced with this impasse, some decide to pay the ransom, but we do not recommend submitting to hackers' demands in this way, as there is no guarantee that they will give your data back to you once they get their money.
If you have been struck by ransomware, EcoSysIP can help you minimize its losses and prevent its spread: contact us now.
