Just because businesses are being hit by the global ransomware attack doesn’t mean you are safe.
Here are some ways you can protect yourself and information.
- Back up your files regularly. A ransomware attack holds your stuff hostage until you pay.
- Pay attention to links and emails from strangers. NEVER open them.
- Immediately install software updates when you get them and keep anti-virus updates current.
- Upgrade your Windows version. We know you love XP, but it’s a prime target for hackers since Microsoft hasn’t supported it in two years. It’s time to say goodbye.
