Ransomware Protection. Secure Backup is your last line of defense.

Unfortunately a cyber attack on your business is no longer a question of ‘if’ but ‘when’. Ransomware poses a very real threat to Australian businesses and the stakes are high. The best way forward? Get on the front foot. We’re here to help you work out what’s the best way to prevent an attack in the first place and have your defense in order.


So, what is ransomware?

To put it simply, ransomware is like a ransom note…but in software. Hackers block access to your computer system until a sum of money is paid. Malware (the name for malicious software) finds and encrypts your files and storage so that everything’s frozen. It can shut down your business, leaving you feeling like you have no choice but to meet the cybercriminals’ pricey demands. You might be wondering, how can this happen? There are several ways but a common entry point is through spam emails (phishing emails) with attachments that people unintentionally open.

The cost of ransomware

It’s hefty! Research shows the average ransom that’s been paid to criminals has been $170,000. But the average total cost of the attack is more like $1.8 million. The worst bit? On average businesses end up losing around 35% of their precious data. That’s what can be really damaging to businesses.

OK, so how can you protect your business?
