Ransomware happens.  I’m not just saying it to scare people.  I see this almost daily now – and I’m going to keep talking about it.  My friends are losing sleep over this, and I don’t want you to lose sleep – or MONEY, also.

I’m sharing a conversation on Slack from Friday, March 21st below, for you to see how real it can get. Ransomware is hitting clients of other IT Consultants constantly – and we don’t want you to be next.

We have network tools and employee training that can help protect you, if you are concerned.  More than 4,000 ransomware attacks have occurred every day since the beginning of 2016, according to a report from the FBI in June 2016. The worst part is that IBM security found a whopping 70% of business victims actually paid the ransom. With this nightmare becoming a reality and such a reoccurring part of our daily lives, it’s important to protect your organization and reevaluate cybersecurity and data-backup solutions to ensure that you are fully prepared in case that ever happens to your organization.
