4 Cyber Predictions for 2020

1. Ransomware and the cloud: Hackers see big money when it comes to virtual data and micro targeting will rise. Phishing emails related to common industry tools or camouflaged as reliable sources will be a used for stealing credentials and sensitive data. 2. 25% of breaches will occur outside of the office: With the number of mobile devices, telecommuters, and off-site assets increasing, businesses are extremely vulnerable. 3. Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) will become standard: Decision-makers know it’s time to validate users due to the staggering number of compromised credentials on the dark web and users with insecure passwords. 4. Voice Deepfakes will become the new phishing bait: Deceived employees send money to scammers or reveal sensitive information after receiving voicemails that sound like they are from company executives. With cyber-crime on the rise, trust NowX to keep you up to date on security solutions, especially with how vital your data is for your day-to-day operations.

January is over, along with the hustle and stress of shopping for the holidays, sending out W-2s, and preparing for the year’s close. But for some business owners, the shortest month of the year isn’t a time for celebrating. With festive decorations put away and no holidays to anticipate, customers and clients may be feeling the gloom of winter. Many may also be holding their wallets a little closer as they recover from the December spending purge. To top it off, tax season is in full swing, but this year, you have 29 days to make February count. MAKE THE MOST OF FEBRUARY Why the Shortest Month Is the Hardest for Business Owners

Make 2020 a year of transformation of streamlined security and data processes.

How do you do it?

STAY AHEAD There’s an old saying about only two guarantees in life: death and taxes. You know tax season is around the corner and your books are up for an intense examination to close out the year. Tax Day, April 15, 2020, and the filing deadline for S corporations, March 15, 2020, will be here before you know it, but if you prepare now, you can enjoy a steady and easy spring.

Dedicated to your success,
