Local News | Stay Internet Safe with these Tips | Andover & VillagesRansomware Attacks have again hit the headlines over the last week.

Although the latest attack hasn’t had a huge impact on UK businesses and organisations it certainly acts as a timely reminder for those who haven’t yet taken steps to protect, to consider their cyber security.

Just taking a few simple steps can greatly increase your defences against ransomware.

The three most important steps to take are:

Ensure you are running the latest version of software and operating system available and install system and app updates on all devices as soon as they become available;

Make your that you have anti-virus or anti-malware software on all devices and keep it updated;

Back-up regularly: create regular back-ups of your important files to a device (e.g. external hard drive) that isn’t left connected to your network – because any malware such as ransomware could spread to that, too.
