In our previous article, we introduced you to Cryptoware (a type of ransomware) and how it happens. In this article, we’ll discuss some of the ways in which you can prevent it.

There are several standard security measures that all businesses should be regularly performing:

Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing

This is a full security audit of your IT systems, locating and eliminating potential threats to the integrity of your corporate network and computer systems before they become a problem

Anti-virus Software

Ensure that you have a good anti-virus software installed on your system and that it is updated regularly. We’ve done the research for you and partnered with reliable vendors to ensure that you get the best anti-virus solution for your business.

Be informed

All security measures are useless if this step is missed. Ransomware is possible by clicking a link or visiting an unsecured site; by educating your employees to avoid visiting sites that aren’t secure or clicking on links they don’t recognize, you’ll minimize your exposure significantly.
