Equifax Breach Could Have Been Prevented – How to Check Your Systems

Written by SkyViewTek on . Posted in .

You’ve probably heard about the Equifax data breach that’s making headline news. Investigators have discovered that it was preventable.

Sensitive information on 143 million people was stolen because Equifax had failed to apply a security patch that was available two months ago. Two executives have now resigned and the company is the target of law suits.

If your systems aren’t patched on time, you increase your risk of being attacked.  Half of all attacks target small businesses.
How to Check if You Are Vulnerable:

A security scan of your systems can help determine your vulnerabilities. Make sure that all of your software patches are up-to-date.

We help our clients manage their IT security proactively.
