Certifications and Professional Associations
Regularly Update Security Software
Hackers are always exploring computer security measures to find weaknesses and develop ways in. In reaction, security software manufacturers are constantly developing patches and software updates to eliminate threats as they are discovered.
- Keep up with software and operating system updates. Otherwise, known weaknesses remain like open doors inviting criminals into your computer.
- Identify what firewalls, anti-spam, antivirus, anti-malware, and anti-spyware software you have installed and always install updates as they are made available.
- Disable Remote Desktop or Terminal Services completely when not in use.
- Use IP address-based restrictions to allow access to devices from trusted networks only.
- Watch out for malicious emails and phishing links. Don’t open emails from strangers. Be suspicious of any links or attachments from unknown sources.
Ransomware Recovery Tips
If you are a victim of ransomware, your first step is to take some time and look for backups, even those located on the affected drives. It’s possible that they were not encrypted.
- DO NOT attach unaffected devices to a computer or other device that has been infected with ransomware, as the malicious program may spread and cause even bigger problems. Instead, use a different computer to look for your files on external drives, thumb drives, and other devices that were not previously attached to your infected computer and may hold some of your irreplaceable files.
- DO NOT delete any files from a device infected with ransomware, whether the files are encrypted or not. The key to getting your data back could be anywhere.
- DO NOT reload your operating system. Doing so may permanently delete all of your irreplaceable data, including photos, financial files, and more.
