Video: Watch How Easily a Hacker Can Access a Company Database

Do you know how easy it is for a hacker to break into a company’s website? According to the above video from CNN Money, it can take mere seconds for a guileless employee to allow access without them even knowing.

As hackers become more socially intelligent and bold, companies of every size need to take steps to educate their employees to better protect themselves and their company. That’s why ALLtech is now offering access to the Allstate Identity Protection Pro Plus plan, a groundbreaking new approach to online privacy that helps users protect their privacy and manage their personal data.

Your identity is more than your Social Security number and credit score. Allstate Identity Protection Pro Plus helps you look after all your online activity, from financial transactions to what you share on social media. If fraud occurs, the plan’s $1 million identity theft insurance policy has you covered. Protection Pro Plus includes:

  • Identity monitoring
  • Credit monitoring
  • Remediation
  • Reporting

Protection Pro Plus is a non-taxable, non-reportable benefit, meaning employers can deduct any cost of offering this service to their employees, when enrolled as employer paid.

Is Your Data Protected From Cyber Attacks? ALLtech is There for You

Did you know that the professional services industry — including information technology — was the fifth most attacked industry in 2020? The threat of cybercrime is all around us, as shown by the recent cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline that created gas shortages this May. And ALLtech wants to make sure you have the resources to protect your employees by offering the Allstate Identity Protection Pro Plus plan, which includes:

  • Identity monitoring
  • Credit monitoring
  • Remediation
  • Reporting

Across the professional services industry, Allstate has tracked attacks involving data theft, server access and ransom demands, including the following trends:

  • 35% of attacks on professional services in 2020 were ransomware attacks — a higher percentage than any other industry
  • 13% of attacks on professional services were data theft, and another 13% were server access
  • 8.7% of all attacks on the top 10 industries came from the professional services industry

In a brochure outlining these trends, Allstate notes that some of the reasons this industry is targeted include:

  • Professional service companies hold sensitive data that threat actors seek
  • Professional service organizations are particularly attractive to attackers because of the avenue they provide to additional victims
  • Threat actors believe professional services organizations are more likely to pay the ransom
