After visiting my new dentist, he informed me that their recent server was hijacked by hackers for a ransom, and once the ransom was paid, they would put everything back as it was originally. Fortunately the hackers have not built trust in this business tactic, and the deal was not accepted.
The Dental Business was down for two whole months while they had to replace their server and set everything up again with a new company. This is an extreme case, but nonetheless it is a severe risk that is waiting to happen to anyone with sensitive information and a glitch in their security.
This happened because their server was set up by a friend that "knows a lot about computers." There are many companies that use the person in their company that is the most tech savvy to monitor their server, but not hiring a professional puts your system up against some serious security threats.
