Cybercrime in carrollton predicted to rise drastically in 2019

Think Unified, a Dallas outsourced IT provider, can save your company from going through a costly ransomware attack: and as each year goes by, the chance of your business getting hacked only rises…that is, if it hasn’t been hit with malware already. In fact, ransomware has become such a serious issue that worldwide damage costs to businesses are predicted to rise to $11.5 billion in 2019, a large leap from the $5 billion cost in 2017.

We know what you’re thinking, “If I get hit with ransomware, I’ll just pay the ransom, get my stolen data back, and be done with it”. But what many small businesses in the Plano, Carrollton, and Grapevine area don’t consider are the very costly side affects of a ransomware attack. Things like damage and destruction (or loss) of data, downtime, loss of productivity, and reputational harm are just a few factors that can lead to the eventual down fall of a business. And for medical offices, lawyers, surgeons, and physicians, failing to protect your patients’ data could result in fines and lawsuits. But luckily there’s something you can do to keep these hackers away!

Think Unified offers fully managed IT support services to small and medium sized businesses who need a data back up and recovery solution and cyber security (and these days, that’s all businesses).  Ransomware is projected to attack a business every 14 seconds by the end of 2019. Don’t let your business get victimized by a cybercriminal and give us a call today to see how our locally outsourced IT services can help you!
