Ransomware, Is your Data safe?
Ransomware is one of the most common forms of digital attack being used today against businesses. Even after paying the ransom 92% of businesses never get their data back and many of them end up having to close due to the loss.
Don’t become a victim of ransomware by listening to our special guest “Jimmy” who shares on this episode how his sub-contracting firm survived two different attacks and join us next week when we learn the top strategies to protect your business from an attack.
- Ransomware attacks don’t need “valuable” data. Ransomware attacks are not effective because they steal data that other businesses or criminals will pay for. Ransomware attacks are successful because your data is valuable to you and your business will suffer without it.
- Be proactive about ransomware. Ignorance is not bliss. Paying ransomware does not mean you are in the clear, in fact Forbes reported that 92% of ransoms that were paid never received the data back.
- Have a culture of security. Technology is here to make your business more accessible to you and your team. But it also puts a target on your back. Having leadership buy in on protecting your data and giving everyone on staff the responsibility to keep that data safe is the best line of defense and will counter a majority of attacks you can experience.
