Cybersecurity, NRC, and you

Cybersecurity continues to be a primary focus for New River Computing. If you tune into the news or Google cybersecurity, it’s showing up everywhere. In the last year, governmental agencies have fallen prey to attacks (Solarwinds), major industries have suffered from ransomware attacks (Colonial Pipeline) and cyber attacks keep coming.

Small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) are prime targets for attacks. Why? SMBs tend to be easier targets. Their systems are often less secure, they have fewer security monitoring tools in place, and they aren’t prepared to respond to attacks.

Last year, cybercriminals delivered a wave of attacks that were not just highly coordinated, but far more advanced than ever before. Simple endpoint attacks became complex, multi-stage operations. Ransomware hits small businesses and huge corporations alike. It was a year of massive data breaches, supply chain attacks, expensive ransomware payouts, and a vast, new, complicated threat landscape. And it was a year that saw cybercriminals up their threat game in a big way.

New River Computing is on a mission to protect and defend the local business community against cyber threats initiated from around the globe. We are comprised of hard working, loyal, and family-oriented team members that are here to serve you and the NRV community.

It’s time to celebrate birthdays and work anniversaries.
