How to Stay Protected – Best Practices
Though ransomware can be an expensive, and difficult software to deal with, it is easy to prevent if you take the right steps:
- Do not open any attachment or click any email links, even if it appears to be from a sender you know
- Always use an antivirus software and firewall
- Do not use a Wi-Fi connection that is public, unless you are using VPN (virtual private network) encryption.
- Use a browser extension that will detect malicious websites
- Back up data each and every day. This allows companies to recover files that were saved before the ransomware set in.
- Always use the most recent release of your favorite browser, and make sure you update to the latest version of Windows or iOS when it is available.
