“According to the 2018 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 58% of cyber attack victims were small businesses (organizations with fewer than 250 employees). This may seem counterintuitive for two reasons. First, the big payoff would seem to be had by going after large organizations. Second, the news is filled with headlines about cyberattacks on big companies, not small ones,” according to Forbes magazine.

What Is a Good Example of a Company Impacted by Ransomware Attacks?
A cybersecurity incident disrupted an Atlanta manufacturing and shipping business in December 2019. Carrollton-based Southwire Co. LLC experienced a breach that brought its critical systems offline. The first indication of a problem occurred when the company’s security monitoring system sent an alert regarding suspicious activity.
As soon as they received the alert, decision-makers quarantined the system and shut down the network, Southwire VP Jason Pollard told Bizjournals.
The company worked with its cybersecurity partner to assess the source of the attack. Many of the company’s locations remained open throughout the breach and investigation.
A company spokesperson did not disclose whether the attack have been reported to law enforcement. It’s common for the FBI in other cybersecurity authorities to get involved following a data breach. Companies are also required to notify any clients, vendors, and employees impacted by compromised data. The incident was reported to be companywide, but nothing has yet been announced regarding a breach of sensitive client and company information.
The statement included an FAQ-style section of questions and answers that included the question: “We have heard that this was a ransomware attack. Is that the case?” The answer included in the statement was “Our investigation is still ongoing.”
