Ransomware is on the rise. As businesses brace for attack, we can’t help but wonder: What would you do if your company were hit with ransomware? Millions of ransom attacks are attempted each year, and if you haven't backed up your files, there's nothing much you can do but pay the ransom. Of course, that puts a target on your back for future malware attacks. Law officials and the FBI are incapacitated, so it’s on you to prevent ransomware attacks from happening in the first place.

Read on to find out how your business can prevent ransomware by taking these steps…

So Microsoft is getting closer to releasing #windows10 ...my advice...wait untile they release Service Pack 1 before you jump off that cliff.  If this release is anything like previous releases, it will be full of bugs...errmmm I mean "issues".  Let the early adopters be the "beta" guinea pigs.

Top 10 safe computing tips

1.  Patch, Patch, PATCH!

Set up your computer for automatic software and operating system updates. An unpatched machine is more likely to have software vulnerabilities that can be exploited.

2.  Install protective software.

Here are a few choices for security software, http://bit.ly/1CsH7tL When installed, the software should be set to scan your files and update your virus definitions on a regular basis.

3.  Choose strong passwords.

Choose strong passwords with letters, numbers, and special characters to create a mental image or an acronym that is easy for you to remember. Create a different password for each important account, and change passwords regularly.

4.  Backup, Backup, BACKUP!

Backing up your machine regularly can protect you from the unexpected. Keep a few months' worth of backups and make sure the files can be retrieved if needed. Learn more about TSM and how to backup your system.

5.  Control access to your machine.

Don't leave your computer in an unsecured area, or unattended and logged on, especially in public places - including free hotspots. The physical security of your machine is just as important as its technical security.

6.  Use email and the Internet safely.

Ignore unsolicited emails, and be wary of attachments, links and forms in emails that come from people you don't know, or which seem "phishy." Avoid untrustworthy (often free) downloads from freeware or shareware sites.

7.  Use secure connections.

When connected to the Internet, your data can be vulnerable while in transit. Use remote connectivity and secure file transfer options when away from your home or office.

8.  Protect sensitive data.

Reduce the risk of identity theft. Securely remove sensitive data files from your hard drive, which is also recommended when recycling or selling your computer. Use a secure erase tool such as DBAN, (Darik's Boot and Nuke).

9.  Use desktop firewalls.

Windows computers have basic desktop firewalls as part of their operating systems. When set up properly, these firewalls protect your computer files from being scanned.

10.  Most importantly, stay informed.

Stay current with the latest developments for Windows, and Linux systems.
