Cyber theft is evolving and assailants are continuously looking for new and creative ways to monetize data, says Steve Ursillo, Jr., Partner, Risk Assurance & Advisory and National Leader: Information Assurance & Cybersecurity at Cherry Bekaert.

Steve highlights multiple forms of cybercrime, including ransomware, that companies need to prepare for and encourages all organizations to evolve their incident response programs with an “assumed breach” mentality to protect businesses of all sizes.
