Ransomware attacks hit again: How you can stay safe

 In News

Once again we find a Ransomware Attack hitting the headlines. Although this latest attack hasn’t had a huge impact on UK businesses and organisations it certainly acts as a timely reminder for those who haven’t yet taken steps to protect, to consider their cyber security. Just taking a few simple steps can greatly increase your defense against ransomware.  The three most important steps to take are:

 

  1. Ensure you are running the latest version of software and operating system available and install system and app updates on all devices as soon as they become available;

 

  1. Make your that you have anti-virus or anti-malware software on all devices and keep it updated;

 

  1. Back-up regularly: create regular back-ups of your important files to a device (e.g. external hard drive) that isn’t left connected to your network – because any malware such as ransomware could spread to that, too.
