Ransomwear - Prevention is the best protection

There has been a very serious global ransomware attack affecting companies big and small across the US and Europe. Bloomberg and CNN are calling this the biggest ransomware attack we have ever seen and are warning that this is just the beginning. Please see more detail in this blog post.
Please find below an infographic that outlines what we can do to put a ransomware protection plan in place to keep running, no matter what happens.

How to Protect your Business from Ransomware, the steps we can taking to protect:

  • Updating all operating system and application software.
  • Removing any software that could pose a security risk.
  • Installing the most up to date antivirus on your machines.
  • Setting up a “bare metal backup”. If the worst does happen, a bare metal backup can reset your computers and network without having to pay any ransom at all. This is the best insurance you can have against a ransomware attack.
