Ransomware is a real problem for businesses of all sizes, and unfortunately, it’s here to stay.
Computer viruses have been the scourge of businesses since the year dot and ransomware is the latest scary prospect. Ransomware attacks like WannaCry rose by 350% last year, and 81% of industry experts expect the trend to continue in this upward curve.
Imagine turning up to work one day and finding yourself locked out of every single computer in the office. In fact, imagine turning up to work and being locked of the office itself. The only way to unlock your precious information – or your front door – is to pay a hefty fee to the cybercriminals who did this to you.
It leaves a bad taste in the mouth and a gaping hole in your company finances.
Protecting against ransomware
The simplest way to protect against this sort of threat, if you don’t have the in-house resources or expertise, is to outsource your cyber security. By using an expert IT support company like Nimbus CS you can dedicate your time to running your actual business, and let us worry about hackers.
We’ll holistically analyse your organisation’s computer security capabilities, let you know where the holes are, and how to fix them. We’ll install state of the art virus and malware computer solutions and provide friendly advice along the way.
Expert IT training
We can also offer IT training courses. As an accredited partner of Microsoft, you can trust that we know what we’re doing. Once we’re done you’ll be sure that every member of your staff is comfortable using your IT systems, knows how to prevent security breaches, and importantly knows what to do if a breach, unfortunately, does occur.
Training has the added upside of increasing IT system user efficiency, allowing not only you but also your employees to get on with running the company instead of being bogged down in computer problems.
By the end of 2019, a ransomware attack will target a business every 14 seconds. If they come for you, make sure your shields are up, and your staff are clued up.
