Is your business protected from ransomware?
Should you pay the ransom to retrieve your data files?
Is your customers’ personal information at risk?
In February 2016, Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital paid $17,000 to retrieve patient data from hackers. The Verizon Data Breach Investigations report estimates that if 1,000 records are lost, businesses can expect to lose more than $67,000. As the size of the breaches increase, so does the cost of ransom.
Hackers are clever! You need to ensure you’re using best practices when it comes to ransomware protection.
What are the best practices?
- Keep your browsers, and other software applications up to date!
- Educate your team on how they can identify phishing scams, suspicious websites and emails.
- Back up your files!
- Install multiple layers of cyber security protection like firewalls, anti-virus with active monitoring, anti-malware, and anti-ransomware on all of your computers.
Don’t be a victim. Choose to be proactive and learn what you can do to prevent this from happening to your business and personal files.
