  • So what is Ransomware?
    • Ransomware is one of the few cybercriminal models that could attack a Fortune 500 Company, The local restaurant or your parents.  In a nutshell Ransomware takes control of a system or computer and prevents a company from accessing the data within it until a fee has been paid.
  • What are the risks to my Company?
    • The financial risk of ransomware is enormous with several high profile events leading to millions of pounds being lost annually.  Ransoms are increasing annually and are normally fall in line with the size of the company and perceived wealth.
  • I don’t use Windows it won’t affect me?
    • Cybercriminals have no loyalty to a vendor – It can cover Windows Mac or other OS. We will help you understand the current risks.
  • How can my Company Protect and Secure against this threat?
    • Until businesses around the world adopt a prevention mind set where there is an internet connection there is a risk.  We will help you to understand and mitigate that risk.  We will cover the three primaries of Preparation, Prevention and response.  For instance do you know when your last successful back up took place and have you tested it?
