Any data been encrypted preventing access?

This is called ransomware and unfortunately, in many cases, once malicious software has been released into your device, there is little you can do, unless you have a backup, or security software in place.

Although it is sometimes possible to help infected users regain access to their encrypted files or locked systems, without having to pay. To assist, Law enforcement has created no more ransom, which is a repository of keys and applications that can decrypt data locked by different types of ransomware.

Red Warning

System been compromised?

Cyber attacks can take many forms, such as denial of service, malware, ransomware, or phishing attacks.  Incidents can be a breach of a system’s security policy that affects its integrity or availability, attempts to gain unauthorised access to a system or to data, changes to a system’s firmware, software, or hardware without the system owner’s consent, or malicious disruption or denial of service.  Get in touch as below.

Have a workforce and want to ensure they can only access data or areas of IT needed to undertake their roles and business objectives, and not stray into areas or access data they are not entitled to?

Consider an internal vulnerability assessment, this can highlight the area an insider would often exploit for their own benefit or gain, causing you disruption and damage.

Your workforce is your first and last line of defence when it comes to a cyber attack, how do I know how they will react?
