As a business, what can you do to prevent ransomware impacting your business? From training your team to investing in software - we can help.
DON’T CLICK ON UNKNOWN LINKS
Cyber criminals rely on you clicking an unknown email or link. The general rule is – don’t click on anything unless you know for certain where it’s come from.
MAKE SURE YOU PATCH
If ransomware doesn’t come in through an email, it comes in through bugs in applications such as Chrome. Flash and Office. Making sure you patch and update your systems whenever a new one is released leaves fewer avenues for ransomware to get in.
BACK UP CONSTANTLY
Okay, maybe not constantly, however backing up is crucial when it comes to protecting your systems. Backing up off-site means you don’t have to worry about the backup device being used against you if it goes missing. We recommend backing up every eight hours as a minimum.
DON’T ENABLE MICROS ON ATTACHMENTS IN EMAILS
Auto-execution of micros was turned off by Microsoft a while ago due to security issues. Some malware infections need micros on for the ransomware to get through, so don’t turn them on!
INVEST IN SOFTWARE
Using a software such as Intercept X will protect your systems from attack and stops ransomware by blocking the unauthorised encryption of your files.
