After recent news titles all over the country warn of the worrisome rise in cyber attacks, companies are on panic alert. The BBC published an article describing this dangerous growth in cyber crime. You’ve probably already heard of ransomware, but if not, here’s the lowdown:
Ransomware is passed around as an infected attachment in emails that have innocent-looking senders, but when you open the attachment, your computer becomes infected, malware spreads out to your contacts, and the virus locks all your files until you pay a ransom. Ransomware is also spreading across mobile technology such as smart phones and tablets. As the ransoms can be large untraceable bitcoin payments which could potentially cripple the business, it is now more important than ever to ensure your network is protected.
We have teamed up with Cyber Essentials to ensure your network has the right defenses in place to protect your all important data. Cyber Essentials is a government scheme helping to crack down on cyber crime and help you ensure maximum protection, whilst also reducing insurance premiums.
Contact us and we will perform a cyber security survey and help you fix any problem areas this may highlight. If you would like to arrange a survey please don’t hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org and get yourself protected now.
