As you're probably already aware, there was a massive ransomware attack that spread across the globe on Friday. In many instances this cyberattack completely paralyzed business operations for some companies. Here are some important tips on how to avoid a costly attack.
1. Don't open emails or click on attachments in emails if you don't know the sender.
2. Make sure your computer has the latest patches. This process will differ depending on what version of Microsoft you are using. Updating the settings on your PC to automatically apply security updates from Microsoft is the easiest way to stay current on patches.
3. Place the security settings in your browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc.) to the strongest setting.
4. If you have third-party security software installed (anti-virus and firewalls), keep them updated frequently to current vendor release levels.
