Networks at Risk: A Ransomware Tale



It's not safe out there. Hackers are lurking and just waiting to strike your computer network. When they do, they will make it very difficult to retrieve or even access your files.

An increasingly common threat to business systems, ransomware takes a computer network hostage. Unless you have the proper security measures in place, it will demand ransom to release the files. Add that cost to the downtime incurred to restore the files (either by paying the ransome or having an IT firm like ProActive restoring them from backups), a hacking attack can get pretty expensive. According to the FBI, ransomware attacks could cost businesses $1 billion this year.

How can your business avoid being hacked?

  • Regularly update anti-virus software

  • Educate employees to recognize suspicious emails/ads

  • Think before clicking

  • Backup all data
