Microbyte Managing Director and Founder Yusuf Yeganeh has been featured in several worldwide online publications – including Zawya and the US National Times – with a clear message for businesses around the world to help prevent cyber attacks.

Read a snippet of the article below:

Microbyte, a leading ICT security service provider, has urged Middle East businesses to step up their efforts and be extra vigilant of the threats posed by cyber attacks, emphasising the importance to invest in a robust infrastructure system for their day-to-day operations.

With the widespread use of technology continuing to bring an increase in cybercrime and the Middle East region establishing itself as a key market for business, trade and tourism, companies of all sizes are facing constant challenges to stop these sophisticated threats.

According to a Kaspersky report, there was a 17 per cent increase in malware attacks in the Middle East in the first half of 2021. This malicious software is designed to damage a device, server or an entire online network when users either click on an infected link, open an attachment or by downloading a malicious application.

As part of their on-going efforts in providing bespoke ICT support services to prevent problems, Microbyte has shared three valuable tips that companies should follow:

1. Don’t rely on Cloud providers to protect your data

Cloud platforms such as Google or Microsoft 365 are popular choices for businesses who can benefit from a range of factors including unparalleled convenience, reliability, scalability, and unlimited storage capacity.

However, users should not rely solely on these platforms to protect their data because if any key information or documents are corrupted, encrypted or deleted, either in a cyber attack or by accident, the data will be lost forever unless it was backed up.

Additionally, tools that are part of Clouds should be configured properly and overseen by an experienced team of ICT technicians that understand security and know how to protect users and data.
