    Cyber security is no longer an option for small business owners – it's a necessity. Cyber threats are rising, and small businesses must stay ahead of the curve to protect their data and networks from malicious actors.

    This show will uncover the most dangerous cyber threats to small businesses and what steps you can take to stay secure.

    Ransomware Attacks Ransomware attacks are one of the most dangerous cyber threats to small businesses. Ransomware is malicious software (malware) that's typically delivered via malicious links or email attachments. Once installed on a network, the ransomware will encrypt all of the data and demand a ransom from the victim before releasing the data. To stay safe from ransomware, all small businesses should educate their employees about the dangers of clicking on malicious links or opening unexpected email attachments.

    Additionally, businesses should back up their data frequently and ensure that all software is up-to-date.

    Phishing Scams Phishing is a type of attack designed to steal sensitive information, such as usernames, passwords, and credit card numbers. In phishing attacks, cybercriminals will send out emails pretending to be from a legitimate source, such as a bank or government agency, asking the recipient to click on a malicious link or provide confidential information. To stay safe from phishing attacks, small businesses should educate their employees about the dangers of clicking on suspicious links and ensure that all emails sent out to customers are legitimate.

    Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are malicious cyber attacks designed to steal data or sabotage systems. APTs are often targeted and can be challenging to detect and remove. To stay safe from APTs, small businesses should use strong passwords, regularly update their software, and perform regular security audits.

    Insider Threats Insider threats occur when employees or contractors deliberately or inadvertently exploit the data or resources of a company. To prevent insider threats, small business owners should ensure that all employees and contractors know the company's security policies and procedures.

    Additionally, businesses should have clear data access and security policies and implement security measures, such as two-factor authentication.

    Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Attacks Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are designed to overwhelm a network with traffic, causing it to become unavailable to legitimate users. To stay safe from DDoS attacks, small businesses should ensure adequate network security measures, such as firewalls and intrusion detection systems. Additionally, companies should have the plan to respond to a DDoS attack, such as enlisting the help of

    Biden Signs Go-Ahead to Use Child Labor to Make E-Car Batteries

    The Biden administration has issued a 20-year ban on new mining claims in the upper Midwest's famed Iron Range, and it is turning to foreign supply chains as it pushes green energy projects.

    The move comes as the U.S. continues to rely on foreign suppliers for critical minerals used in wind turbines and electric vehicles.

    The ban is part of a broader effort by the White House to reduce reliance on imported minerals, particularly from China, which is accused of dumping cheap products into the U.S., causing prices to plummet.

    The Trump administration has been working on curbing this practice through tariffs imposed on steel and aluminum imports from China and other countries. But critics say those efforts are misguided because they would raise costs for American companies that use those metals in their products — from cars and airplanes to solar panels and wind turbines — while doing little to curb Chinese overcapacity.

    In addition, they argue that such tariffs would exacerbate America's trade war with China by driving up prices American consumers and manufacturers paid.

    The Biden Administration recently announced a 20-year ban on mining, shifting its focus to foreign supply chains as part of its push for green energy. One significant project affected by this ban was the Twin Metals mining project, which was estimated to contain 88% of the country's cobalt reserves and large amounts of copper, nickel, and platinum-group elements. These critical minerals are crucial for various green energy technologies, including electric vehicle batteries, battery storage systems, solar panels, and wind turbines.

    For instance, producing an electric vehicle requires 500% more minerals than a conventional gas-powered car, while a single onshore wind turbine requires 800% more minerals than a typical fossil fuel plant.

    Interestingly, just a week before the mining ban, the Biden Administration signed a memorandum of understanding with Zambia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, two countries that are well-known for their child labor practices in mining rare metals like cobalt and copper. This move raises questions about the administration's commitment to promoting ethical and sustainable practices in its green energy initiatives.
