How to Protect Your Business from Ransomware Attacks

During the holiday season many employees were likely “multi-tasking” – i.e. doing a little bit of online shopping when at work. Which in the scheme of things is no big deal.

Unless you inadvertently click on a link which brings your company to a grinding halt.

Last year at this time, we got a call from a DC-based association who walked in one morning to find their online systems inaccessible.

One of their employees had clicked on an attractive-looking ad while on a familiar shopping website.

The employee was completely unaware that the ad had infected their PC with ransomware, a type of malicious software designed to block access to company data until a ransom is paid.
