Why it pays to prevent Ransomware attacks.

It’ll ruin your whole week given half a chance…so don’t give it one. Let’s cover what Ransomware entails, and how you can stay aware and secure online.

Ransomware is a malicious piece of software that uses encryption to deny access to the files on your computer. It’s like burglars breaking in to your home, putting a combination lock on your front door and only providing the code if you pay them an exorbitant fee.

Ransomware hackers promise to restore access to your computer with an unlock key, in exchange for a ransom payment. It’s a simple enough premise, using some very sophisticated tech under the hood.

We’re writing about this because there has been, and will continue to be, an increase in Ransomware attacks worldwide.

Everyone Can Prevent Cyber Crime With Awareness

The impact of fraud and victimization through technology as a target and technology used as a tool now totals in the billions of dollars annually in Canada. The destruction is only expected to expand through the ‘Internet of Things‘ — devices connected via the Internet that collect and exchange information with one another and with us.

During October, police services and subject matter experts from across the country want to safeguard all Canadians from becoming victims of online and digital crimes. The OPP 2017 Cyber Security Awareness Month public, media and social media campaign will focus on four broader themes, including:
