How to protect your computer from Ransomware?
Update, Update, Update That’s the key. Update your Antivirus Protection and run a thorough scan. Update Microsoft Windows, make sure your not leaving any updates sitting ready to install. Update Java, you know the pop up that keeps popping up in the bottom right of your computer screen. Update it now!
Other than your system being up to date, knowledge is the other key. Do not open emails from anyone you don’t know. When an email comes in that you are not sure about, move it to you spam folder until your sure you don’t need it, but do not open it.
The last key point is back up your important data! I recommend off site backups to protect against fire and water damage but if nothing else backup to a thumb drive. I can help you get setup with off site backups just give me a call.
