Why CEO’s Shouldn’t Ignore the Human Factor in Cyber Security in Kenya

Why CEO’s Shouldn’t Ignore the Human Factor in Cyber Security in Kenya

In this era and with the world COVID pandemic, the majority of CEO’s are still taking cyber security requirements too lightly leading to serious consequences. The human element is still playing the biggest role in rendering most businesses vulnerable to cyber security threats and attacks. A recent study conducted by Kaspersky Lab on over 5,000 businesses around the globe revealed that about 52% (which is more than half) of businesses believe they are at risk from within. This is to say, the staff, either intentionally or unintentionally through acts of carelessness or lack of knowledge put the businesses they work for at great risk of cyber-related threats. 

Kenya is not exceptional when it comes to cyber risks, therefore CEO’s ought to be aware of how easy it is for employees or the human factor to impact a company’s security by exposing the companies to security breaches. On many occasions, the same employees can be used as the attack vectors by being careless or uninformed hence becoming prone to threats such as phishing and social engineering since they do not know how to spot the difference between a legitimate application or fake one to lure them opening a malicious malware or virus application.

It is very important for businesses not to consider policies alone as a way of covering cyber-related risks since not all policies are always followed. CEO’s therefore should consider solutions that provide more visibility and centralized security management of corporate networks, regular employee awareness training on cyber security so that they can be conscious of the impacts if they are ignoring the risk, they are exposing the company by their null or negative actions to safeguard the company data.

Any individual with access to an organization’s systems and data is a potential vulnerability. Most if not all of the high-profile corporate security incidents and breaches involve a human error or intentional, malicious actions. This is because many of them are usually successful cyber-attacks from external attackers who take advantage of the human weaknesses to lure insiders within organizations to provide them with access to sensitive company information. 

Below are the Human Factor Strategies to consider for your organization

  1. Cyber workforce development:  Build a cyber workforce, capable of rising to the challenge of cyber security through recruiting and retaining efforts. 
  2. Training and awareness: Take a fresh look at information security training & awareness efforts; provide immersive learning opportunities to reinforce behavior change.
  3. Stakeholder and leadership engagement: Set up partnerships with leadership across organizations and ensure that leadership engages and supports cyber security programs.
  4. Finance Security initiatives: Organizations must also adopt more comprehensive strategies and increase their cyber security budgets. Of most importance is the adoption of threat intelligence which is not only based on technology but also human expertise. Threat intelligence systems usually automate the process of identifying important attacks out of vast data, tracking events as they occur with a real-time analysis that monitors the behavior of software, systems, and the human factory to detect a malicious incident. All this has to be planned with a budget in mind.

Do you need a cyber security training or the implementation of threat intelligence systems? 

Call East African Data Handlers today ( +254 0711 051 000) remember your employees urgently need an online cyber security training to protect themselves and the company data against any cyber-attacks. Remember by making employees aware of security threats, how they might present, and what procedures to follow when a threat is identified, you‘re indeed strengthening the most vulnerable links in the chain.

Did you know that Threat Intelligence also enables organizations to draw on evidence-based knowledge, including but not limited to the context, mechanisms, indicators, implications, and actionable advice, about an existing or emerging menace or hazard? Since the event is logged, Threat Intelligence platforms provide forensic data that can be used to conduct the root cause analysis by determining the patterns, predict possible attacks and attack vectors, and help to prevent future attacks.

Did you recently experience a data breach? Get in touch with us today so that we can help you discover when, how, who, and why the breach was successful.  Call now ( +254 0711 051 000) 

The most effective strategy is therefore to recreate an actual working environment and putting employees amid a very real cyber-attack that they must defend against.

Different Types of Ransomware

Do you know Different Types of Ransomware ?

Call us for Decryption Services in Nairobi Kenya

Type of malware (malicious software) that locks your computer screen and prevents you from accessing your files and asks you to pay a certain … The most debated topics in the IT world today is about Ransomware. Case study that caused this was the large-scale impact caused by the WannaCry ransomware which happened to cripple many businesses across the world. The most annoying thing about Ransomware is the constant repackaging and evolving by hackers making them very hard to keep track of the latest versions or strains of ransomware.

Do you know each variant of ransomware has its own way of spreading, and heavily rely on social engineering tactics to lure and deceive its users while they hold their critical information or data hostage ( Ransom ) . Allow us to check the various ransomware variants well known now;

CryptoLocker

The CyptoLocker ransomware came into existence in 2013 when hackers used the original CryptoLocker botnet approach in ransomware. It is one of the oldest forms of cyber attacks which has been around for the past two decades.

In terms of destruction to data, CyptoLocker ransomware is on of the most form of ransomware for it makes us of very strong encryption algorithms. More than often proves to be impossible to decrypt (restore) the Crypto ransomware-infected computer and files without paying the ransom.

WannaCry

The WannaCry ransomware has a history of infecting more than 125,000 organizations in the globe. Its alternative names given to the WannaCry ransomware are WCry or WanaCrypt0r. It is by far the most widely known ransomware variant across the globe.

Bad Rabbit

Bad Rabbit first infection was across Russia and Eastern Europe and spreads through a fake Adobe Flash update on most compromised websites.

Cerber

Running any cloud-based Office 365 as a user Cerber is the ransomware variant which will target you. An elaborate phishing campaign to the Millions of Office 365 users was carried out by the Cerber ransomware to form as the target prey.

Crysis

Crysis is the most annoying type of ransomware that encrypts files on fixed drives, removable drives, and network drives , you just get stack. Mode of infection or spreads are through malicious email attachments that have double-file extension, be on the Look out. Why its hated is because of use of a strong encryption algorithms making the owner have a difficult operation of services and request for its decrypt time delays you.

CryptoWall

This is an advanced form of CryptoLocker ransomware. First sited in 2014 immediately after downfall of the original CryptoLocker variant. This days it has multiple variants of CryptoWall in existence that is CryptoDefense, CryptoBit, CryptoWall 2.0, and CryptoWall 3.0.

GoldenEye

Similar to the infamous Petya ransomware. Mode of spreading is by massive social engineering campaign which targets ( HR ) human resources departments. When a user ( HR) etc, downloads the GoldenEye-infected file, silently it auto start a macro that will encrypt files on the (users) victim’s computer device.

Jigsaw

When you have a timer to finish your data then this is the variant. Jigsaw is the most destructive types of ransomware that encrypts and slowly and systematically deletes all the encrypted files until a ransom is paid. The deletion process for the files is hourly basis until the 72-hour mark- when all the remaining files are deleted.

Locky

You can call it the invoice ransomware. Usually spreads through email message disguised as an invoice. Locky locks the victim’s computer and prevent them from using it.

How this infection takes place. When a victim opens the invoice email attachment, it gets deleted automatically and are directed to enable macros to help read the documents and once they enable, Locky starts to encrypt multiple file types using the AES encryption.

Other variants known are , Petya, NotPetya, TeslaCrypt, TorrentLocker, ZCryptor, etc., just know they are designed for malicious activities.

How do you prevent Ransomware ?

Kenya Data recovery

Kenya Data Recovery

What is Data recovery?

Kenya Data Recovery plays a big role in Kenya business industry to help companies resolve data disaster occurence. So, do you understand what it means to do data recovery?  Do you have lost data or have data files that are corrupted ? Are you looking for Data recovery  experts? Do you have raid drives and and  in urgent need of raid recovery?

Are you stranded looking for a reliable Data Recovery Experts company in Kenya, Dar es Salaam Tanzania , Kampala Uganda and  Kigali Rwanda? Do you know we also do  Data recovery Sudan

In computing, data recovery is a process of salvaging (retrieving) inaccessible, lost, formatted or corrupted data from secondary storage, data files or removable media, when the data stored in them cannot be accessed in a normal way. The data is most often salvaged from storage media such as internal or external hard disk drives (HDDs), solid- state drives (SSDs), USB flash drives, magnetic tapes, CDs, DVDs, RAID subsystem, and other electronic devices.

Recovery may be required due to physical damage to the storage devices or logical damage to the file system that prevent it from being mounted by the most operating system (OS).

The most common data recovery scenario involves an operating system failure, malfunction of a storage devices, accidental damage or deletion, etc. (typically, on a single-drive, single-partition, single-OS system), in which case the ultimate goal is simply to copy all important files from the damaged to another new drive. This can be easily accomplished using a live CD or DVD by booting directly from a ROM instead of the corrupted drive in question.

Many live CDs or DVDs provide a means to mount the system drive and backup drives or removable media, and to move the files from the system drive to the backup media with a file manager or optical disc authoring software. Such cases can often be mitigate by disk partitioning and consistently storing valuable data files (or copies of them) on different partition from replaceable OS system files.

Another scenario involves a drive-level failure, such as a compromised file system or drive partition, or a hard disk drive failure. In any of these cases, the data is not easily read from the media devices.

Depending on the situation, solutions involve repairing the logical file system, partition or the master boot record, or updating the firmware or drive recovery techniques ranging from software-based recovery or corrupted data, hardware and software-based recovery of damaged service areas (also known as hard disk drives “firmware”), to hardware replacement on a physically damaged drive which allow for extraction of data files to a new drive. If a drive recovery is necessary, the drive itself has typically failed permanently, and the focus is rather on a one time recovery, salvaging whatever data can be read.

The term “data recovery” is also used in the context of forensic applications, where data which has been encrypted or hidden, rather than damaged, are recovered. Sometimes data files present in the computer get encrypted or hidden due to reasons like virus attack which only be recovered by computer forensic experts.

Surge of MegaCortex Ransomware attacks detected

Surge of MegaCortex Ransomware attacks detected

A new strain named MegaCortex.

A cyber-security firm in the UK has reported detecting a spike in ransomware attacks at the end of last week from a new strain named MegaCortex. The firm said the MegaCortex ransomware appears to have been designed to target large enterprise networks as part of carefully planned targeted intrusions – a tactic that is known as “big-game hunting.” The modus operandi is not new and has been the preferred method of delivering ransomware for almost half a year.

MegaCortex now joins an ever-growing list of ransomware strains that cyber-criminal groups are using only in targeted attacks, rather than with spam or other mass deployment techniques. The list includes some recognizable names, such as Ryuk, Bitpaymer, Dharma, SamSam, LockerGoga, and Matrix.

SUDDEN RISE OF ATTACKS THIS MONTH.

According to a report released late Friday night 3rd May 2019, MegaCortex was first spotted back in late January, when someone uploaded a sample on malware scanning service VirusTotal.

Since then, the number of attacks has been growing, but they spiked mid last week when the firm says it detected 47 attacks – accounting for two-thirds of all the 76 MegaCortex attacks the company has seen all year.

The firm says it blocked the attacks it detected, which originated from enterprise networks located in the United States, Canada, the Netherlands, Ireland, Italy, and France. However, other megacortex attacks might have occurred in other places where the UK antivirus vendor had no coverage.

Facebook Messenger Spam and scam is targeting its victims via a video link malware

Facebook Messenger Spam & Scam Spreading Malicious Chrome Extensions, Adware

Beware Facebook Messenger users, as cybercriminals are targeting victims by spreading malware through links sent by their friends.

The malware campaign was discovered by David Jacoby, a senior security researcher in the global research and analysis team at Kaspersky Lab, who was himself targeted after a Facebook friend with whom he rarely interacts, sent a link to a purported video file in Messenger.

After just a few minutes analyzing the message, I understood that I was just peeking at the top of this iceberg. This malware was spreading via Facebook Messenger, serving multi platform malware/adware, using tons of domains to prevent tracking, and earning clicks,” David said.

So, how does this malware spread? Apparently, the malicious message containing a bit.ly or t.cn link and the name of the user plus the word “Video” arrives through one of your friends account on Messenger to make the potential victims believe that it is a legitimate video link. When the victim clicks on the link, it will take the user to a Google Docs page that has a screenshot photo of that Facebook friend. The message is made to look like a playable movie.

But when clicked on that video, the victim is redirected to external sites depending on their browser, location and operating system that ultimately attempt to lure them into installing the malware. This malicious software, if downloaded, will cause the victim to spread the virus to their contacts on Facebook Messenger.

By doing this, it basically moves your browser through a set of websites and, using tracking cookies, monitors your activity, displays certain ads for you and even, in some cases, social engineers you to click on links,” Jacoby writes.

 

facebook_messenger_malware

For example, a Google Chrome user is redirected to a fake YouTube page with a fake error message designed to push the user in downloading a malicious Chrome extension.

Meanwhile, on Firefox, the users get directed to a website displaying a fake Flash Update notice, which attempts to run a Windows executable to deliver the adware. Since this malware is cross-platform, it affects MacOS Safari too and offers the download of a .dmg file, which is also adware.

It is unclear how the malware spreads via Messenger.

The initial spreading mechanism seems to be Facebook Messenger, but how it actually spreads via Messenger is still unknown. It may be from stolen credentials, hijacked browsers or clickjacking,” David speculated.

The people behind this are most likely making a lot of money in ads and getting access to a lot of Facebook accounts,” said David.

We know that clicking on unknown links is not recommended, but through this technique they basically force you to do so.

Please make sure that you don’t click on these links, and please update your antivirus!,” added David.

When ZDNet got in touch with Facebook regarding the matter, a spokesperson for the social media giant said: “We maintain a number of automated systems to help stop harmful links and files from appearing on Facebook.

“If we suspect your computer is infected with malware, we will provide you with a free antivirus scan from our trusted partners. We share tips on how to stay secure and links to these scanners on facebook.com/help.
