Ransomware is a grave threat to any business. It’s an incredibly complicated problem that traditional IT defenses have been unable to stop, and a single strategy cannot fix it.
Even the smallest unknown or unpatched computer vulnerability can be catastrophic to an organization and its customers.
Hacking is no longer new. It’s become a daily conversation in newsrooms and boardrooms everywhere; hacking and data breaches are the never-ending security story of the 21st century. To rise to this occasion, strong IT leadership is essential. Data breaches can happen at any moment, and we now need to assess the influx of increasingly massive amounts of data for risk in real time.
Hacking is in the news nearly every day and people constantly reach out to ask me if their information is safe. Are they at risk? What can they do to be more protected? Should they get a VPN or use Tor?
The best thing to do is to start simply. Begin with your passwords. Do you have good passwords on your accounts?
Backup just may be the panacea for computer viruses and ransomware.
