Browsing Facebook I came across an advertisement for Covetrus (Maker of Veterinary Software) that stated 60% of companies that experience data loss close within six months.
The ad neglects to site a source or even explain what kind of data loss. Did Marge from HR delete a photo from the annual company picnic? Did ransomware wipe out the CEO's desktop?
So I asked in a post for their source.
They send me this link: https://www.inc.com/joe-galvin/60-percent-of-small-businesses-fold-within-6-months-of-a-cyber-attack-heres-how-to-protect-yourself.html?fbclid=IwAR2POu0JO9eyQuJiw9S66cf_iEFEc8kBT1vlAgsMXWFMantVn0EVDFu5Ndo
The link is by the Chief Research Officer of a company called Vistage. Vistage as it turns out is a company that sells CEO mentoring/training/coaching to other companies to help them succeed.
To view the article you click on a link and put in all of your personal info into Vistage's website.
Once you do that, you are scheduled with an online meeting with Vistage about how to become a member of the organization and receive services from them.
(Bob Loblaw has a 10:30 appointment tomorrow with them)
Such a shame that many people will see their ad and not even think twice about if any of it is even true.
Just my rant for a Monday morning!
