Ransomware is a sophisticated and serious threat to your information system, and it can cost your business a lot. The good news is using the right controls and security approach you can defend against ransomware virus. Many service providers and software companies use scare tactics to drum up business. One of their favourite red flags is ransomware protection, and their solutions almost always incomplete and expensive. Some SMB owners, panicked by a potential ransomware attack, fold and crash their budgets to ward off security threats. Others, with limited resources, put their heads in the sand and pretend that their systems are safe. Both reactions defy logic and are not the way to go.
