Ransomware attacks aren’t new, but they’re becoming more widespread and malicious. The fact that we are all so dependent on information makes us all targets. And unfortunately, there are some people who just don’t care how they earn a living. So they apply their skills and intelligence toward fraudulent and immoral endeavors.
This is no joke or hoax. Attacks can be directed at anyone. The threat is real and should be taken seriously.
And because we view this as a significant topic with such devastating consequences, we’ve decided to make it this month’s spotlight once again. It’s directed to all businesses, regardless of type or size.
The first line of defense is to NEVER open unsolicited email from an unknown source. And DON’T click on any links or OPEN any file attachments. But it doesn’t stop there.
The perpetrators can “spoof” valid email addresses to make it appear that you’ve received an email from a known or reputable source. Which could cause you to let your guard down.
Always be vigilant and always proceed with caution.
At IDeACOM, we are extremely fortunate to have a vendor-partner with an effective solution to protect against the destructive impact of a ransomware attack.
Think about being down for days, weeks, or months without access to your customer data, accounting systems, or email. That would be devastating. Your business may never recover. Or if it did, the mounting financial loss could end everything.
I hope I have your attention now.
