The infographic, “Ransomware: Protect Your Business,” provides a brief explanation on how to protect your business from malicious software, such as Ransomware. Malicious software will usually access your company’s network via an email attachment or a website that encrypts files on a computer network without user knowledge. The only way to decrypt the data is usually paying a “ransom” to the criminals to release the data.
Statistics shows that 85% of targeted companies said their systems were down for almost a week due to 82% of Ransomware triggered by email clicks or lack of staff training. Almost 63% of businesses have no Ransomware policy in place to guide staff on what to do. 53% estimated that the attacks cost the business $1000 to $2000 per day.
To secure your business, rigorous and ongoing training of staff regarding internet and email safety is essential. Knowledgeable users can prevent most threats. For more information regarding Ransomware, refer to the infographic below.
