IT hackers threaten medium-sized businesses so aggressively

Cyber attacks from the Web are becoming increasingly aggressive. Especially medium-sized companies can find themselves in an existential emergency. It is necessary to arm oneself against this.

IT attacks on companies are nothing new, but the type and number of attacks are increasing: In the spring of 2020 alone, hackers will "devote" themselves to a number of German companies and corporations. For example, the Internet provider 1&1 is one of the victims of a cyber attack, in the course of which ransom money is extorted - via fake customer invoices. Customers downloaded an Excel file infected with the ransomware Hakbit. Above all, companies from the information technology, manufacturing, insurance and technology sectors are targets of the attacks. What can be done about it?
