Three ways to stay protected!
There are numerous strategies for safeguarding against ransomware. The first, and by far the most eﬀective, is user awareness and education, because ransomware does not install itself. Ensure that all your staﬀ, including management, recognize phishing and spam and so do not open suspicious emails or follow links to other websites. All users should also be cautious or even suspicious of attachments, pictures or graphics received unexpectedly from known persons, because the sender’s email account may have been compromised.
Antivirus software and security is a sound layer of defense. Quality antivirus protection can stop thousands of attack attempts and in the situation that an employee does click a malicious link or downloads a Trojan-containing attachment, antivirus will often save a system from full-blown infection.
As we have highlighted, the simplest option to defeat ransomware is having a regularly updated backup. If you are attacked with ransomware you can restore your system to an earlier snapshot or clean up your machine and restore your other lost documents from backup, you can rest easy. With DDB, you will be protected in the oﬃce, out of the oﬃce or anywhere around the world.
