Why Should Affordable Housing Organizations Invest in Cybersecurity?

Multifamily affordable housing organizations are more vulnerable than you realize, especially with an increasingly remote workforce. Cybercriminals attack housing providers with alarming frequency, using discreet and difficult-to-detect methods to access private systems and confidential data that put residents, employees, and entire housing organizations at risk.

Since 2016, the U.S. has experienced about 4,000 ransomware attacks daily. Cybercriminals don’t just focus on larger companies with deep pockets—70% of ransomware attacks affect businesses with fewer than 1,000 employees.

— Scott Stevens, chief information security officer, Integrity Technology Solutions
