Network Support in Baltimore, MD: Fend Off Hackers This Holiday Season
According to an October 28, 2014 report from The Washington Post, hackers were able to infiltrate computer networks in the White House. Investigators believe that the hackers are affiliated with the Russian government. White House officials reassured the public that only superficial documents were touched, and that the hackers were unable to gain access to classified material. This story comes as a somber reminder of how vulnerable most IT systems in the United States are; the ones based in Baltimore are no exception. This is especially true during the holiday season, as many hackers know that targeting small businesses at this time of year tends to be profitable.
