Oregon Small and Medium Sized Business are being Targeted

Yesterday, January 14th, the Oregonian released an article that “Ransomware attacks hammer some of Oregon’s best-known brands: McMenamins, Yoshida, Bob’s Red Mill.” The article goes on to say more “small and midsized business, school districts, and other low profile targets” are being attacked. It’s unfortunate that businesses, school districts, and other smaller entities must spend some of their limited resources on battling these issues. The sad news is most business that are compromised don’t ever fully recover.

Online attacks, once associated with major corporations, are increasingly hammering small and midsized businesses, school districts and other low-profile targets.
