Protecting Your Business from Advanced Ransomware Attacks


Cyber security has become a prominent issue in 2017. News stories of Russia’s influence over the last presidential election to the hackings of major corporations, like Yahoo and Twitter, have caused corporations to worry about security and privacy, especially with the growing dependency on technological devices. The question remains: how do I protect my company from ransomware attacks?
