How To Protect Your Data From Ransomware

October 21, 2020

You’ve probably heard of computer malware – but have you heard of ransomware? It’s what criminals use to target the data in your business.

Ransomware is a form of malicious software placed on your devices to lock you out of your data. And it’s terrifying. The criminals will then demand cash to unlock your data.

Every business/organization is at risk of ransomware all the time. Including yours. Because hackers use automated tools to sniff out opportunities.

Here are three ways to protect yourself:

  • Use security software and keep it up-to-date.
  • Check sender details carefully before opening attachments. And be wary if you’re asked to enable things called macros to view files, documents, or messages.
  • And back up your data to the cloud constantly and check that backup daily.

If you’re concerned about ransomware, need to update your security, or need any assistance properly backing up your data, get in touch with us.
