Don't Be Held Ransom(Ware)

Published: 2020-11-23 in General


It looks like you have some troubles with your IT security.  You go to access your files and a message appears across your screen that reads “All your files are now encrypted unless you pay a ransom”.

Ransomware is malware that is leaked into a computer and employs encryption to hold a victim’s information at ransom. Hackers target small/medium size business because it is easier to get into the system with little to no security posture in place.

Have you gotten a security audit recently?

Do you have an IT Security Roadmap in place?

Unfortunately, if you have no viable backups and cannot locate a decryption key, your only option may be to cut your losses and start from scratch.

Rebuilding will not be a quick or inexpensive process, but once you’ve exhausted your other options, it’s the best you can do.
