An Opportunity

Security


So we are being told we have 2 weeks to make sure we are safe before the work done recently to prevent cryptoware and GameOver Zeus come back.

SO what can be done, well a quality anti-virus product, and a quality firewall are the basics.  However (And certainly the case with cryptoware infections we have dealt with) these are infected by people clicking on an attachment.

So perhaps now is the time to carry out some education of staff, (or family members) teach them how to scan emails and attachments before they open, (or ingrain in them) that they can't open any attachments.

Next on the list would be to make sure you are backing up all of your data, and that the backups are working properly, and deal with any issues with the backup.
