WeDoIT becomes your beacon, blending innovation in security seamlessly with enterprise objectives.
Key Cybersecurity Statistics
Here are some statistics to help you understand why you need to focus more on cybersecurity.
- Cyber threats surged in the first half of 2023, with Check Point Research reporting an 8% increase in global weekly cyberattacks in the second quarter, marking the highest volume.
- In 2023, less than one-third of organizations reported performing essential leading cyber-related practices consistently, pointing to the requirement for cybersecurity improvements and consistency.
- The top three cyber-related threats reported are cloud-related attacks, attacks on connected devices, and hack-and-leak operations.
- In 2023, Cybersecurity market size is projected to reach $162 billion in 2023.
Cyber Threats Facing Enterprise Information Infrastructure:
The following are the most significant threats faced by organizations and critical infrastructure as adversaries become increasingly sophisticated:
Ransomware is malware that takes over the files on the victim’s information system and encrypts them. The threat actors encrypt all the files and demand payment for the decryption of the data. Such attacks can be devastating for enterprises and businesses, which is why IT heads must focus on what matters by mitigating them before they cause a loss of data, downtime, and reputational damage.
Example: One of the most prominent ransomware attacks was on the Kaseya software enterprise that provides IT services to businesses. REvil was behind the attack that occurred in July 2021, affecting nearly 1,500 businesses, where the threat actors demanded a ransom of $70 million.
Supply Chain Attacks
Supply chain attacks target software and hardware supply chains to compromise the security of the product suite that businesses rely on. They are highly challenging to detect and can affect many organizations simultaneously.
Example: One of the most alarming supply chain attacks was the SolarWinds in December 2020. Russian state-sponsored threat actors compromised SolarWinds’s supply chain, affecting multiple US government and private agencies. Efficiency in digital certificate management is vital to prevent supply-chain attacks.
As businesses and organizations migrate to cloud infrastructures, threat actors target them to carry out data breaches, DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks, and malware infections. These are a top concern for cybersecurity specialists and IT management teams when protecting next-level IT businesses today.
Example: A cloud attack that made headlines worldwide was the Colonial Pipeline attack of May 2021, where a ransomware attack disrupted fuel supply to the east coast of the US. The attack was from a Russian malicious group that exploited a VPN (Virtual Private Network) vulnerability. A high availability of virtual smart card systems is essential in preventing cloud-based attacks.
Threats to Critical Infrastructure
Data centers, power grids, and transportation systems are critical infrastructure systems vulnerable to cyber-attacks and can cause massive physical damage and disruption. Such attacks can be carried out by hacktivists, threat actors, and nation-states.
Example: A water treatment plant in Florida was targeted in 2021, where the malicious actors attempted to increase the levels of NaOH (Sodium Hydroxide) in the water supply. The attack was unsuccessful but perfectly outlines the vulnerability of critical infrastructure that needs to be addressed.
How WeDoIT Helps Protect Its Customers’ Infrastructure
WeDoIt has the most advanced cybersecurity solutions and tools to protect your organization from the most challenging threats and maintain a healthy cybersecurity posture, as listed below.
Cybersecurity Risk Assessment
WeDoIT safeguards its clients’ infrastructure through cybersecurity risk assessments, pinpointing potential vulnerabilities and threats for the organization. With such assessments, WeDoIT can formulate a robust cybersecurity plan.
By outlining the vulnerable points, WeDoIT can create strategies to enhance security, ensuring clients’ infrastructure remains safeguarded against all cyber threats. Within our Cybersecurity Risk Assessment services, WeDoIT employs cutting-edge PKI technology, including PKI hybrid cards and dual interface cards. These advanced tools not only fortify your organization’s digital security but also enable secure logon and secure access control, making sure your sensitive data remains protected from evolving cyber threats.
Offering Tech-readiness and Scalability with Cynet All-in-One Cybersecurity Platform:
WeDoIT offers efficiency and high availability by utilizing the Cynet All-in-One Cybersecurity Platform, which has numerous automated visibility, prevention, detection, correlation, investigation, and response features.
A natively automated, fully integrated, and end-to-end protected platform provides comprehensive protection and visibility across endpoints, users, networks, and SaaS (Software as a Service) applications. Above all, it is scalable, allowing WeDoIt to adapt to your changing needs and provide the necessary protection as your infrastructure grows.
Compliance with NIS2 Directive and Cyber Resilience Act (CRA) Readiness:
WeDoIT also ensures IT transformation by complying with the NIS2 Directive and CRA (Cyber Resilience Act) readiness. The NIS2 Directive is an EU (European Union) directive that aims to improve the efficiency of critical infrastructure across the EU.
It is a UK law that requires enterprises to have appropriate cybersecurity measures in place to protect against cyber threats. WeDoIT helps you avoid fines and reputational damage by ensuring compliance with these regulations.
PQC (Post-quantum Cryptography) Readiness:
WeDoIT is always prepared for the future of cybersecurity by being PQC (Post Quantum Cryptography) ready. PQC is the encryption method that is resistant to attacks from quantum computers. As quantum computers become more powerful, traditional encryption methods may become vulnerable to attack. Still, by being PQC-ready with WeDoIT, you can ensure data protection for the customer and the organizational against future threats.
With a closer look at the threats and how we keep them at bay, you can understand how WeDoIT stands firm as your ally in enterprise digitalization. Our commitment extends beyond safeguarding your assets; it encompasses empowering your growth.
With WeDoIT cybersecurity solutions, your focus can remain on innovation and leadership. At the same time, we fortify your digital stronghold, ensuring your organization thrives securely amidst the ever-shifting tides of cyber threats. Trust in WeDoIT – where security is not just a protective measure but a promise fulfilled.
