Avoid Ransomware Attacks May 4, 2018 print friendly version

Ransomware is a form of malware used by cybercriminals to freeze your computer or mobile device, steal your data and demand that a “ransom” —  typically anywhere from a couple of hundreds to thousands of dollars — be paid.
To combat the threat of ransomware, consumers are encouraged to use caution when opening emails or attachments they don’t recognize, back up their files, use popup blockers to avert unwanted ads and malware and keep operating systems security software up to date.
Businesses should also take proactive steps against ransomware by educating employees, managing the use of privileged accounts, having a data backup and recovery plan for all critical information and alerting law enforcement when faced with a possible attack.
