FinTech Mining Review

by Emily Jacob (2019-01-19)

Small and mid-sized businesses FinTech Mining should be concerned - Symantec's report stated 2014 was a year of far-reaching vulnerabilities, faster attacks, files held for ransom, and far more malicious code than in previous years. Nearly one-million new viruses are discovered every day. They say 60 percent of all targeted attacks struck small and mid-sized businesses. Just as alarming, a recent Palo Alto Network study stated that 52% of malware in 2013 focused on evading security making it more difficult to guard against an attack. It is no wonder small and mid-sized businesses are targeted. They often have fewer resources to invest in security, and many are still not adopting best practices to protect their valuable information. This puts not only the business, but their business partners and customers at higher risk. Every organization, small to large, is vulnerable.
