Being held to ransom could be financially damaging to your business in today’s digital age
An established or developing business may find its fortunes lifted with new technologies such as the cloud but with new technologies come new risks to your business. One such risk that is getting more notoriety recently is Ransomware.
Ransomware is a form of malware or a virus that prevents users from accessing their systems or data until a sum of money is paid. This is a practice that has become common place in today’s digital age and being reported on more frequently in the news.
Apart from paying the ransom, a good backup strategy is the only defence a company has against this sort of attack.
