The Threat of Ransomware [Video]

Did you know that nearly eight hundred thousand users were targeted by ransomware in 2015? This threat is becoming very real for many businesses, and it's expected to become more prevalent in the near future.

To combat ransomware, you need to know what to look for. CryptoLocker and CryptoWall target users with messages that look like they were sent from authorities and other trusted sources. When the target clicks on the message, their device is infected and their files are held for ransom.

Often, hackers will ask for payments in Bitcoin, which many end up paying in order to recover their data. To protect yourself from these threats, team up with experts like NovaStor to schedule backups and ensure that your data is secure even if your device falls to ransomware. Stay tuned to find out more about how backups support your business.
