Ransomware and exposure to cyber attacks

What is it?

Ransomware is a type of malware that threatens to publish the victim’s data or perpetually block access to it unless a ransom is paid. Difficult to trace digital currencies such as Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency are used for the ransoms, making tracing and prosecuting the perpetrators difficult.

Ransomware attacks are typically carried out using a Trojan that is disguised as a legitimate file that the user is tricked into downloading or opening when it arrives as an email attachment. 

Starting from around 2012 the use of ransomware scams has grown internationally. There were 181.5 million ransomware attacks in the first six months of 2018. This marks a 229% increase over this same time frame in 2017

What could happen to the parking lot in this case?

If an attack such as this happens to a parking lot:

  1. The virus attacks the whole server and affects all the data (users, credit cards, reports…) in which case all the data will need to be restored manually – if at all possible.
  2. If they have an external data backup that is completely offline then in a worst case scenario they will lose a day’s worth of data which will need to be restored manually. 
  3. If they have an internal backup in the server then the backup is also affected and all the data is lost. 

What are the advantages of technoso here?

With Technoso’s new system – Any actions done to the parking lot server or one of the computers of the managers connected to the parking lot cannot affect the data that is securely encrypted in the cloud and gets multiple backups at any given moment.
The system is physically stored in Microsoft Azure it communicates through MQTT + HTTPS at 128/256 BIT. All the systems and servers work with Encrypted VPNs, both Microsoft VPN & our own Blue PT VPN.
