Probrand

Our very own security expert Mark Lomas talks us through the different tactics to stop ransomware and how to minimise the damage caused once infected.

How can you stop ransomware - Part 1 - Anti Virus

Anti-virus is obviously a key part to protect yourself against ransomware, and it is important that you have up to date modern anti-virus software across all of your PC’s and of course your servers.

How can you stop ransomware - Part 2 - Server Monitoring

On your servers in particular, where you store your most crucial files and data you can deploy monitoring software to look at your files and scope any malicious activity that might be taking place and shut it down.

How you can stop ransomware- Part 3 - B is for Back-up!

Plan B is for Back-up! Are you files backed up to multiple sources? Probrand recommends backing your files up in two places (as a minimum). One on the cloud, and the other on a physical storage device that is disconnected once the back-up process is complete.

How you can stop Ransomware- Part 4- The damage to your business
