Stress for Success
Stress is the common thread that each human being experiences. Stress can be linked to unstable relationships with your job, partner, kids, finances, or just with chronic negative self-talk and self-doubt. While stress is connected to the development of diseases such as diabetes, cardiac disease, and some cancers, it within itself is actually not a disease. According to the World Health Organization, stress is defined as merely the verbal, behavioural, spiritual, or physical reaction a person has when presented with pressures or demands that do not align with their personal knowledge and abilities, which challenge their ability to cope. As a result, the body experiences neurobiological changes that increase cortisol, blood pressure, heart rate, and respiration, while affecting sleeping, eating, and mood patterns. Again, despite the unparalleled affect stress has on the body, it is not a disease.

Cybercriminals thrive on both of these scenarios – using lack of preparation or overconfidence in what was deployed to their advantage. To thwart the possibility of succumbing to a ransomware attack, companies need to implement the following five defensive strategies, according to experts at Index Engines, leaders in supporting companies in mission-critical information management, cybersecurity and governance challenges.
