The likelihood of having a security breach or malware attack is currently at an all-time high. The most likely attack will come from some form of “ransomware”, this is where malicious software encrypts your files and demands payment to decrypt the files.

 

The like hood is that the way the infection will get onto your systems is already in your business, this form of attack is normally a result of someone within the business opening an infected email attachment. So it will be you or your employees that let it in.

 

So what can you do to minimise the risk?

Start with Employee awareness training, let them know the dangers and use examples if you can. Explain how attachments and click through options on email should be avoided unless you are 100% sure of the source and were expecting it.

Ensure that your Anti-Virus \ Malware are up to date.

Ensure that your systems are having security patches applied.

Check you Backup and Business Disaster Recovery policy.

Work with your IT provider to check your systems security.
