It is the purpose of this paper to analyze the viability of a future projected business, which consists in the foundation of a computer sales and services company called "CSGlobal", this name stands for “computer services global”, and will be in the city of Miami. This business idea arises for the need of complimentary services that the city lacks to provide at certain days of the week and late hours, besides to offer computer solutions for small, medium-sized companies and home consumers. The idea of this business plan is to run a company that is primary dedicated to security, sales, virtualization, web development, services, repair and maintenance of computers and systems. The justification for this business idea is based on the …show more content…
From a long time ago, companies were worried about their visibility on the internet, sales, profits, and, in isolated cases, by security concerns regarding breaches on their networks or hackers steeling important data. The last 5 or 6 years have been plagued from ransomware, viruses, malware and all kind of malicious software, take as example identity theft breaches from 2013 to 2017, according to the specialized website www.breachlevelindex.com the statistics show more than 15% in growth (58.78% in 2013, 73.05% in 2017) as an average 59 records (Name, address, DOB, SSN, credit card number) are stolen every second in the world, making a total of more than 5 million stolen records in a lapse of a single day. On the other hand, ransomware has become the jewel of the crown in an information technology threatening world, with two “popular” variances on top -cryptowall and cryptolocker – encrypting the whole content of the user’s hard drive in a way that is impossible to get your data back unless you pay a ransom in digital currency such as Bitcoins or Ukash, amounts that can range from $300 to several thousand dollars, to this day it is almost impossible to recover the encrypted files without paying the money, unless you keep a copy of your data somewhere
Files that have been encrypted by CryptoLocker are very hard to break. Experts advised the victims not to pay any money even if they did not come up with any solution for them to recover their files. It was however unfortunate that paying the ransom did not always guarantee that the files were decrypted. The people who were responsible for this malware did not always assure the victims that they were going to decrypt the files (McMillan).
Ransomware has been persistently developing in the previous decade, to a limited extent because of advances in cryptography. The wide accessibility of cutting edge encryption calculations including RSA and AES figures made ransomware more hearty. While gauges change, the quantity of ransomware assaults keeps on rising.

The threat is incredibly serious—and growing. Our nation’s critical infrastructure, including both private and public sector networks, are targeted by adversaries. American companies are targeted for trade secrets and other sensitive data, and universities for their cutting-edge research and development. Citizens from anywhere across the globe are targeted by fraudsters and identity thieves, and children are targeted by online predators. Just as the FBI transformed itself to better address the terrorist threat after the 9/11 attacks, this means enhancing the Cyber Division’s investigative capacity to have strong sharp focus on intrusions into government and private computer like network to.hospitals, school districts, state and local governments, law enforcement agencies like the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Central Intelligence Agency, Drug Enforcement Administration, National Security Agency, Naval Criminal investigative Service and Department Of Defense, small businesses, large businesses these are just many who have been impacted by ransomware, a threat type of malware that encrypts, or locks, valuable digital files and
Times have changed what was known as organized crime has been replaced by Cybercrimes (Heists: Cybercrimes with Ben Hammersley). Cybercrimes have risen dramatically in recent years and have become a major issue the United States and company’s face today jeopardizing as well as threatening the critical infrastructure of America (Cyberwar Threat, 2005). Sadly, the status quo of cyber security is very unstable with the advancements and growth which has put most individuals and businesses into an enormous threat (Agustina, 2015).

This research project discusses a common threat that is consistently present in the world that we live in today on the front of cybersecurity as well as cyberspace. Among all of the various cyber-attacks that exist in our world today, Ransomware has taken a front seat when discussing the different types of threats that create the potential to harm us users on a day to day basis. This form of threat is something that has been plaguing users for years and has caused financial manipulation for hospitals, businesses, and private citizens as well. This research project will discuss the threats that have been present in the past 5-10 years and will provide an in depth study of what occurred and what could have been done in order to prevent this type of attack from happening. The topic of risk assessment and vulnerability will be analyzed as well.
As previously stated, cybercrime is a market with exponential growth. Cyber attack written premium growth is expected to rise from $1 billion in 2015 to $5 billion in 2018. Scalable cyber insurance is important, as smaller business will likely increase as their vulnerabilities become more apparent to cyber hackers. However, coverage for the cybercrime market is in its early stages, making underwriting difficult as there is little data to base prices on. Through October 4, 2016, 725 data breaches have occurred, affecting more than 29 million records. Medical and healthcare breaches account for 37% of the breaches and 48% of the records affected. Travelers is positioned well to leverage opportunities during the demand surge of cyber protection among businesses. External cybersecurity risks will be the main driver of the cyber insurance market. External hackers breaking into company databases, adding ransomware and leaking private
I like your take on the lessons learned from the Ransomware attack especially the emphasis on being cautious about phishing. The impact of phishing falls on everyone, however, the worst part is that though phishing is now more than a decade old, many people are still not familiar with how it works and still fall victim to its scam. The main reason why phishing continues to be a successful method of attack is because anti-phishing technologies are often created to counteract phishing by applying technical solutions rather than addressing the human source of the problem (Steinberg, 2014). Cyber criminals use the victims’ computer systems to set up viruses and worms and disseminating phishing emails further to their contacts. I think
Mich78@Usa.com Ransomware is a pesky PC contamination which is particularly modified by the criminal programmers with a specific end goal to infuse and shows awful ads on PC screen. It invades the prevalent Firefox and inserts them with some promotional content of different shapes and sizes. In addition, it causes alterations in settings of browser. Such risk begins their vindictive activities from changing the homepage of browser, default search engine, and new tab page. When the infection completes these changes, it gets the capacity to reroute PC users to foreordained websites that are attempting to build their prominence.
The WannaCry ransomware was found in May,2017. This ransomware looks for and tries to encrypt about 176 file types as well as appends. It puts the words WCRY at the end of a file name. Following that its asks the user victims to pay a ransom in the form of bitcoins. The note says that after three days of nonpayment the amount will double. After seven days, the encrypted files have a possibility of being deleted. The way that the ransom payment is set up is the attackers request to be paid by the form of bitcoins. The unique Bitcoin walled address in the infected computer in this case does not execute correctly. Therefore, the WannaCry goes into a three-hardcoded bitcoin address to receive the payments. This ransomware is said to be the works of a hacking group known as shadow brokers. They claim to have discovered flaws from the United States Security Agency (NSA).
Imagine, one day you wake up and you’re running late. On your way into work you stop at your favorite coffee shop. You order your coffee and your muffin, and you go to swipe your card only to find out it declines. What do you do? You call your bank and they tell you several accounts have been hacked and yours was one of them. Now you have no money, no access to your savings. Everything you’ve ever worked for is gone and it only took one click. This is a very real possibility, and it doesn’t stop at bank accounts. Cybercrime is at an all-time high, and no one is safe.
Malicious insiders have many ways to remove data from any organizational system. With the positive sides of internet; we also have to face the negative impacts of it. The malicious insiders can transfer the data through the use of emails or storage services. As a result, the organizations have to face challenges and take correct measures to protect their confidentiality. Microsoft’s Google Docs and SkyDrive need to be protected too as they allow to upload files without considering whether encrypted or not(Silowash, Lewellen, Burns, & Costa, 2011).
Cybercrime has become a fast growing concern for the 21st century as businesses, institutions and individuals grow into an interconnected web of computer networks. Online business transactions, along with the sharing of personal information, are vulnerable to a host of disasters that can reap economic and social havoc. Some sources say that today, cybercrime costs more than $1.0 trillion to society--Global Industry Analysts, Inc. forecasted the world cyber security market to reach $80 billion by 2017 (Gale, 2011).
