Ransomware and other cyber threats have grown massively in recent years, both in number and complexity. A worrying number of UK businesses get hit with these type of cyber-attacks, it isn’t just the big companies that get targeted!
In 2017 you may have seen organisations such as the NHS being hit with a strain of ransomeware called WannaCry or WanaCryt0r. In total it is estimated WannaCry infected 200,000 computers worldwide. The estimated cost to businesses was hundreds of millions, with the estimated average business cost anywhere from £3,000 to £40,000, depending on the size of the business.
Ransomware works by encrypting all of your business data on your desktops, laptops and servers, making the data inaccessible! The creators of the ransomware then demand a large fee to decrypt the data. Even if you pay the ransom, it is hit and miss whether the data is actually decrypted. Not only that but by paying the ransom, you are funding them to create an even more sophisticated ransomware!
PCL can help by tailoring a Managed Security solution to your business requirements. PCL realise that the fight against cyber-attacks is not just down to the protection you have in place; it is also down to education. This is why we can also provide guidance for staff to help avoid accidental download of installation of ransomware, malware and viruses.
