How to protect your data from ransomware

Find out 3 ways to protect against Ransomware. 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, that’s incredibly valuable to you.

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 is at risk from ransomware all the time. Including yours because hackers use automated tools to sniff out opportunities.

Here are three ways to protect yourself, use appropriate 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.

Our email wasn’t performing very well so we asked Hamilton Systems to take a look & Carl proposed to migrate us to MS Exchange.

Carl was very helpful throughout & the migration went very well.

He was on hand to sort out any teething issues, taking calls early morning & into the night, to ensure we were up & running smoothly.

Would recommend for knowledge, attention to detail & great customer service.”
