Throughout 2017, high profile ransomware attacks left many businesses on edge, wondering whether or not they had sufficient protection in place. And although a surge in awareness has helped curb the repercussions of cyber crime, threats promise to evolve and proliferate in 2018 – reiterating the importance of these three habits:
The infamous WannaCry and Petna ransomware attacks both found success through the vulnerabilities inherent to PC’s that had not been updated. For this reason, it’s important that every time an update becomes available for your phone or computer, you download and install it. These updates usually promise performance improvements, but often they also include the latest security patches to address and prevent the newest threats.
Ante Up Your Anti-Virus
The policemen at the gate of your computer systems, anti-virus software seeks, destroys, and warns of possible threats. Without it, ransomware (and the malware that gives it credibility) can wreak havoc on your systems and end up costing your business more than the anti-virus software itself.
The only way to guarantee the safety of your business’s data, information, and files is to back them up – either on the cloud or remotely. In the event of a ransomware attack – or any cyber crime – you won’t have to worry about lost files or significant downtime, with your backup files readily available to you.
