For Immediate Release

Space Coast, Florida – 3-6-24 – In a proactive move towards fortifying cyber defenses for clients and ensuring compliance with the latest and upcoming Department of Defense standards, Rolle IT has announced a substantial investment of over $500,000 in its cybersecurity and compliance program. This investment marks a significant milestone in the company’s commitment to safeguarding its operations and client operations against evolving cyber threats.

This investment represents software, training, compliance, and a sizable growth in its Security Operations Team which is led by a former NSA cyber analyst and comprised of multiple CMMC Registered Practitioners, CMMC Certified Professionals, cybersecurity subject matter experts and compliance specialists.

Rolle IT is proud to announce its intent to achieve Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC 2.0) compliance as an extended services provider to Defense Industrial Base Contractors. The CMMC framework, established by the Department of Defense (DoD), serves as a comprehensive cybersecurity standard designed to enhance the protection of sensitive government information. CMMC is expected to be a requirement of some federal contracts as soon as fall of 2024.

Among other IT Consulting and Development capabilities, Rolle IT currently serves as a Managed Services Provider (Helpdesk/ IT Operations/ IT Infrastructure/ Cybersecurity Operations) to small and medium businesses, with a focus on serving the Defense Industrial Base and supporting those who support our warfighters.

By investing in resources to work with client organizations to prepare for achieving CMMC, Rolle IT demonstrates its unwavering commitment to meeting the rigorous cybersecurity requirements set forth by the DoD and other regulatory bodies. This commitment not only strengthens the company’s ability to support organizations who participate in government contracts but also underscores its dedication to maintaining the highest standards of cybersecurity across all facets of its operations for all clients.

“At Rolle IT, we recognize that cybersecurity is not just a priority – it’s a fundamental imperative. Our substantial investment in cybersecurity and focusing for preparing us and our clients for CMMC underscore our unwavering commitment to protecting our clients’ data and maintaining the trust they place in us. We remain steadfast in our dedication to staying ahead of emerging threats and ensuring the resilience of our cybersecurity defenses.”- Cordell Rolle, CEO

With this bold investment and achievement, Rolle IT reaffirms its position as a leader in the IT industry, upholding an elevated standard for cybersecurity excellence and proactive risk management.

What is Malvertising?

Malvertising, short for malicious advertising, refers to the practice of using online ads to spread malware. Cybercriminals embed malware within seemingly harmless ads, which are then displayed on legitimate websites. When users click on these ads, they unwittingly download malware onto their devices, putting their personal information and sensitive data at risk. Bad actors are pairing these efforts with SEO Poisoning to falsely promote malicious websites to higher ranks in search engine results. SEO poisoning relies on users believing the results closest to the top of a search result are the most credible.

“Throughout 2023, adversaries such as LUNAR SPIDER regularly abused Google advertisements to ensure their malicious ads appeared at the top of search result pages. Threat actors such as SolarMarker operators regularly used SEO poisoning throughout 2023.” – Crowdstrike Annual Threat Report

The Dangers of Malvertising

Malvertising poses a significant threat to businesses of all sizes.

  1. Data Breaches: Malvertising can lead to data breaches, exposing sensitive information such as customer data, financial records, and intellectual property.
  1. Financial Losses: A successful malvertising attack can result in financial losses due to theft, ransom demands, or damage to business operations.
  2. Reputation Damage: A data breach caused by malvertising can tarnish a company’s reputation and erode customer trust, leading to a loss of business and credibility.

Rolle IT Protects clients from Malvertising threats.

  1. Ad Filtering: Ad filtering services block malicious ads from being displayed on your website or network.
  2. Timely Software Updates: Ensuring that all software, including web browsers, plugins, and security software, is regularly updated with the latest patches and security fixes.
  3. Employee Training : Train employees to recognize the signs of malvertising and avoid clicking on suspicious ads or links.
  4. Establish Secure Connections: Encourage employees to use secure connections, such as virtual private networks (VPNs), when accessing the internet, especially on public Wi-Fi networks.
  5. Monitor Network Traffic: Monitor network traffic for signs of unusual activity or unauthorized access, which may indicate a malvertising attack in progress.
  6. Endpoint Protection: Install and maintain endpoint protection solutions, such as antivirus software and intrusion detection systems, to detect and block malware infections.

Malvertising is a pervasive threat that can have serious consequences for businesses. By taking proactive measures to protect against malvertising, businesses can safeguard their data, finances, and reputation from harm. By staying vigilant and implementing robust security measures, businesses can minimize the risk of falling victim to malvertising attacks.

Safeguarding Your Digital Fortress: A Guide to Protecting Your Personal Data.

In an era where technology permeates every aspect of our lives, the protection of personal data has become a paramount concern. As an IT company committed to digital security, Rolle IT understands the significance of safeguarding your digital identity. In this blog post, we’ll share essential tips and best practices to help you fortify your digital fortress and ensure the security of your personal data.

  1. Use Strong, Unique Passwords: The foundation of digital security starts with robust passwords. Create unique passwords for each of your accounts, incorporating a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters. Regularly update your passwords to minimize the risk of unauthorized access.
  2. Enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA): Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security by requiring a second form of verification in addition to your password. Whether it’s through a text message, email, or authenticator app, 2FA significantly reduces the chances of unauthorized access, even if your password is compromised.
  3. Regularly Update Your Software: Outdated software is a common entry point for cyber threats. Ensure that your operating system, antivirus software, and all applications are regularly updated. Software updates often include security patches that address vulnerabilities, making it harder for cybercriminals to exploit weaknesses.
  4. Be Cautious of Phishing Attempts: Phishing attacks are a prevalent method used by cybercriminals to trick individuals into revealing sensitive information. Be skeptical of unexpected emails, messages, or links. Verify the legitimacy of communication before clicking on links or providing any personal information.
  5. Encrypt Your Data: Encrypting your data adds an additional layer of protection, making it unreadable without the appropriate decryption key. Utilize encryption tools for sensitive files and consider using encrypted communication channels, especially when sharing confidential information.
  6. Review App Permissions: Be mindful of the permissions granted to apps on your devices. Some apps request access to more information than necessary. Regularly review and update these permissions to limit the data exposure in case of a security breach.
  7. Secure Your Wi-Fi Network: A secure Wi-Fi network is crucial for protecting your personal data at home. Use a strong, unique password for your Wi-Fi, enable WPA3 encryption, and change the default username and password on your router to prevent unauthorized access.
  8. Back Up Your Data: Regularly back up your important data to an external drive or a secure cloud service. In the event of a data breach or loss, having backups ensures that you can quickly recover your information without succumbing to ransom demands.
  9. Educate Yourself on Cybersecurity: Stay informed about the latest cybersecurity threats and best practices. Knowledge is a powerful tool in defending against digital threats. Follow reputable cybersecurity blogs, attend webinars, and invest time in learning about emerging threats.

Protecting your personal data requires a proactive approach and a combination of technical measures and user awareness. By implementing these best practices, you can significantly reduce the risk of falling victim to cyber threats and enjoy a more secure digital experience. At Rolle IT, we are committed to empowering individuals with the knowledge and tools needed to navigate the digital landscape securely. Stay safe, stay secure!
