Stealing data is about making money – and it’s the fastest growing, biggest cyber breach affecting Australian businesses. Sadly, businesses who fail to heed warnings on how to protect their data continue to fall victim – and continue to be surprised when it happens to them! This post includes three steps to protect your files from cryptolocker attacks.
Safe – Unsafe
Files that are saved on your network servers and backed up can be recovered. Data that sits on your C-drive or stand-alone device/s are not backed up, and not safe.
- Make sure all necessary data is included in your regular back up!
- Make sure your backup is working. Keep checking this on a regular basis.
- Keep reminding your team that data left on hard-drives or stand-alone devices is not safe!
