This isn’t news but cyber threats are a persistent issue for businesses and individuals alike in this day and age. If anything, the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened the threat landscape as cyber criminals are taking advantage of the related uncertainty and rapid transition to remote workforces and learning environments. In Connecticut, we saw that firsthand as a ransomware attack locked down the first day for Hartford Public Schools last month. The City of Hartford’s response was exemplary as they did many things right before, during, and after the attack, but it served as a stark reminder of the ever-present threat of cyber criminals. With October being Cybersecurity Awareness Month, I reached out to some cybersecurity and technology professionals for tips and insights to help you secure your businesses and home (as for many of us this year our home has become our office) in hopes of a more cybersecure tomorrow for everyone.

The world learned last week that the information of over 10 million hotel guests at MGM Resorts was obtained by hackers. The data breach is the result of a security incident that occurred last year, but the data was being shared in hacker circles recently and discovered and verified by ZDnet. Most of the data is limited to hotel stay info, addresses, and phone numbers dating back to 2017 and earlier. Since Kelser is a trusted, local managed service and cybersecurity provider, FOX61 News had Kelser CTO Jonathan Stone on following the breach to discuss what hackers can do with this type of apparently harmless information.

It’s been a difficult summer for Connecticut public schools when it comes to cybersecurity. In addition to the three Connecticut school districts hit by cyber attacks in late July, it recently came to light that the Wolcott public school district suffered a devastating ransomware attack months ago from which it has not fully recovered. No data was stolen, but a great deal of data was locked and held for ransom, much of which was not backed up. As a result, teachers are starting the new school year without key materials.
