Ransom Ware Threatens Marketers
Mark Radosevich wrote an article on January 17, 2018 that appears on the Convenience Store Decisions website covering the growing concerns of cybercrimes within the petroleum marketer’s community.
As the opening tagline states, “Cybercrime knows no bounds, and not paying attention to your computer security can trip up a company plenty.”
The article discusses what prime targets petroleum marketers are becoming for cybercrime and ransomware due to the high volume of customers and cash petroleum wholesalers and oil marketers deal with. These attacks are further being fueled due to non-traditional banking intermediaries such as Bitcoin being involved to aid the nefarious schemers activities that makes finding such culprits far more difficult to impossible!
And while private individuals should be very concerned about identity theft and security, any and all businesses need to be far more concerned these days because they are dealing with the financial and personal data of thousands to millions of individuals along with that of their own business. And last I looked, technology is becoming more prevalent in everyone’s day to day life as time marches forward…unless you want to live in the wilds away from society that is.
It is always the best course of action to deal with highly qualified experts dedicated to cyber security to minimize the impact and fallout so you do not become the next victim.
