Ransomeware Alert

Earlier this month, we were alerted by our IT guy regarding a computer virus raring its’ ugly head again.  This virus comes in an email format and has an attachment that if opened is a virus with ransomware.  This is where the virus locks your entire system and you have to pay a Ransom for it to be unlocked. He has advised that in most cases these viruses can cause huge amounts of damage and down time for our business.

We suggest that you check with your IT Provider that they have implemented policies to lock down systems and also implemented multi – layer protection and ensure good backups.
