Ransomware is software that infects your computer with malware and encrypts (“locks”) your data. The attacker then demands you pay exorbitant sums of money to get your data back. This has become a serious problem for small businesses.
Up-to-date backups are critical for recovery from these attacks (and are generally very good business protection). Additionally, make sure your backups don’t stay connected to your computers. Unplug your external backup device once a successful backup is completed.
