Todd Carpenter Quoted in TCB Magazine on Remote Workforce Cybersecurity Concerns
In the February/March issue of Twin Cities Business Magazine, Adventium Labs' Todd Carpenter weighs in on emerging network security threats as more and more employees work remotely.
"Ransomware 'is one of the biggest threats that's out there,' says Todd Carpenter, co-owner of Adventium Labs, a Minneapolis-based firm that develops cybersecurity technologies (he also serves as the firm's chief engineer). 'It's a great way for organized crime to quickly monetize attacks.'"
The article continues, "Even if you pay, the attackers 'can still leave their hooks in there,' he adds. 'If you get this on your home computer, it might lie dormant waiting for a high-value target,' he says. 'And as soon as you connect to the office, it will try to get into the corporate system. After all, you can make more money from a corporation than an individual.'"
