What is cyber security?
Cyber security refers to technologies, processes and practices that are implemented to protect your network, hardware, software and valuable data from the bad guys. Cyber attacks are no longer just something that large companies have to worry about as the frequency in attacks on small to medium sized business is rising exponentially. Ransomware is the latest big issue that everyone that uses technology faces. What would happen if your data was to become encrypted and held for ransom? Do you know if you could get it restored without having to pay the ransom? If you aren’t 100% sure that you could restore your data in the highly likely event of an attack, we need to talk.
