From TG Soft's CRAM the AWARENESS activities for ECSM European Cyber Security Month 2022-10

OCTOBER is the month of CYBER SECURITY, from TG Soft Cyber Security Specialist NOT only awareness but also protection tools...

ECSM European Cyber Security Month 2022

October, crowned at the European level as the month of CYBER SECURITY reaches its 10th edition this year. The ECSM campaign, organized by the European Cybersecurity Agency ENISA, includes a variety of activities, congresses, conferences and events throughout the month of October in all EU member countries to promote awareness of cyber threats among citizens and methods to counter them, to change their perceptions and provide up-to-date information on cybersecurity.

The official motto of ECSM 2022 is "Think Before U Click," the main topics that will be covered are:
  • "PHISHING" With the aim of sharing useful guidelines and tips on how to identify phishing.
  • "RANSOMWARE" to find tips and advice on how to prevent ransomware attacks.

CLUSIT Associazione Italiana per la Sicurezza Informatica
In Italy, the European Information Security Month is supported by Clusit together with a variety of organizations, universities and research centers. Like every year, TG Soft Cyber Security Specialist, a CLUSIT member, also actively participates in the ECSM, promoting cybersecurity both in terms of awareness but also in terms of concrete tools made available to the public.
This year we are especially involved  because we have always supported divulgation, outreach and awareness of cyber threats to the public, particularly with regard to the 2 themes featured in the European campaign, through:

  • the release of monthly reports on the most common PHISHING circulating in our country, providing guidance on how to recognize them in order to prevent our personal data from falling into the hands of cyber criminals.
  • In addition to the monthly campaigns on phishing, weekly CRAM AntiMalware Research Center of TG Soft makes and publishes information on malspam campaigns targeting Italy, which aim to convey RANSOMWARE, PasswordStealer, TrojanBanker and whatnot...
To prevent these attacks, it is important to know and implement some common sense practices. However when you are victim of a ransomware attack, it is crucial to defend yourself with concrete tools that can mitigate these attacks. TG Soft has always developed 100% Italian proprietary technologies capable of countering cyber attacks.

Monday, October 03, 2022 ==> Gianfranco Tonello and Enrico Tonello speakers at the meeting on "Cyber Security."

Incontro Ordine degli Ingegneri della Provincia di Padova => Tra i relatori saranno presente anche Gianfranco Tonello ed Enrico Tonello di TG Soft.
Training/discussion meeting on the topic of "Cyber Security" organized by the Association of Engineers of the Province of Padua together with the Padua Foundation of Engineers, as part of a training project entitled "The Engineering Profession between ETHICS and VALUE."
The meeting held on Monday, October 03 at 5 p.m. featured as speakers Eng. Gianfranco Tonello and Eng. Enrico Tonello co-founders of TG Soft.
The topics covered in the meeting dealt precisely with the main themes of this year's ECSM PHISHING and RANSOMWARE.

Ransomware attacks with remote desktop access (RDP)... here are some useful tips to protect your PCs/Servers.

Sometimes business needs (and too much haste to achieve goals) can distract from what has become a global and unavoidable issue today: CYBER SECURITY.
More and more users need technologies that allow them to work and access data and programs remotely. Especially thanks to the spread of CLOUD systems, and to the Covid-19 health emergency, many working realities have had to reorganize their working habits by introducing SMARTWORKING. These needs expose to cyber attacks by CyberCriminals.

rdpIn fact, attacks persist with remote desktop access (RDP) to PCs/Servers to convey Ransomware/CryptoMalware suitable for encrypting files for ransom purposes.
Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is a remote management protocol developed by Microsoft and found in all Windows® Operating Systems used for remote PC/Server management that, if not configured properly, can be exploited as a point of attack.

The analysis carried out by TG Soft's C.R.A.M. found that in these types of attacks, gross errors are often made in the configuration of the affected machines that help the success of the attack. We invite you to follow the advice of our technical experts=>Ransomware attacks with RDP access breaches continue..
