Prime Time for a Cyberattack

Cyberattacks can happen at any time, but usually happen when least expected.  Did you know that there is a certain time that is considered the prime time for these attacks to occur?

You work hard, and let’s face it, you deserve some time away!  But a quick trip to gain some R&R may just be what cybercriminals have been waiting for.  Cybercriminals never take a vacation, but use other people’s vacation plans to their advantage.  Since a person is less likely to realize they are the victim of an attack if they are away from their computer for an extended period of time, this is the perfect opportunity for cybercriminals to make their move.  Besides vacations, around the holidays is another time that they zero in.   The large amount of emails flooding everyone’s inboxes regarding holiday deals around the holidays, as well as financial activity, tend to not get immediate attention if people are away from their computers.

If you hire an MSP like CATS Technology Solutions Group, there are steps that will be taken to further protect you from cyberattacks all year round, even if you take that much needed vacation.

  • Available 24/7/365 – CATS Technology has a team of technicians who are available all day, every day. There is always someone available to assist with any issues that may come up.
  • Cyberattack Monitoring – CATS Technology offers constant Proactive Monitoring of your system, including weekends and holidays. So if there is a breach, our technicians are immediately alerted directly through our ticketing system.
  • Enable Cyberattack Back Up – Data should always be backed up, but especially before a holiday. Having a recent backup that is easily accessible is a great way to get back on track quickly if it’s ever needed.

Remember, while you are planning to be away from your computer, hackers are planning to get in.  CATS Technology Solutions Group will make sure you are fully protected so you will never have to worry!
