What can you do if you become a victim of ransomware?

You can pay the ransom or wipe the computer clean and recreate your data. But, let’s face it, neither of these options will do much to make your day a good one.

The easiest solution to a ransomware attack is to restore your data directly from a backup.

We’ve talked before about the importance of backups. Backups are the key to your overall security plan.

The best backup systems will not only preserve your data, but also enable you to access and restore your data when you need it.

It’s important to make sure that your backups run as scheduled.

We’ve heard far too many stories about backups that did not run for one reason or another. In some cases, for example, the employee responsible for backups went on vacation and made no arrangements with anyone to run the backups in his/her absence.

In other cases, no one noticed that the backup system did not work as intended.

You, however, can avoid these and other problem by having Future Link IT monitor and test your backups on a set schedule. Give us a call to discuss your network security needs and how we can work together to protect your business.
