Do you have a cloud backup?
Seriously, do you have a cloud backup? Folks, this is getting really scary. One of the newest ransomware viruses will actually start deleting your files if you don't pay up in the hour that they give you. Minimize your downtime and loss of business and employee productivity, and decrease your stress levels with a cloud backup, message or comment and we will help you.
Is it worth the risk to your valuable company data and digital assets to not have a safe, secure, automatic cloud-based backup and business continuity system in place?
You won't worry about an employee unwittingly clicking on a rogue link IF, and I mean IF you have a cloud backup in place. See that creepy guy up there in the picture? He is on the warning page that this most recent virus opens to tell you that you are infected, letting you know how long you have to pay the ransom before files are deleted. You can read a little more about that here:
A cloud backup won't protect you from that employee who clicks on malicious links, which is why you might stress to your staff that opening attachments should only be done when:
- You are expecting the attachment from the sender.
- You trust what the sender is sending.
- If attachment is at all suspicious, best course is to call the sender and see if it is legit. If not, DELETE it.
A cloud backup will protect you should the unthinkable happen...you or someone on your staff clicks on a link that unleashes a malicious payload in your environment.
Hit me up in the comments and let me know how you are protecting your systems and data. Are you using an automatic cloud backup now? Will it automatically replicate your server and allow you to continue to operate your business?
