PREVENTION IS THE BEST WEAPON AGAINST RANSOMWARE

We all know what’s been happening in the last few days with WANNACRY ransomware. Corporately, we can take steps to prevent the attack of this type of virus, such as being up to date with Operating System updates, having an up-to-date antivirus with the anti-malware definitions also updated, configuring security filters in the DNS or having a firewall with the appropriate filtering capabilities.

BUT WE, THE USERS, HAVE THE POWER TO PREVENT ANY INFECTION BY FOLLOWING A FEW SIMPLE STEPS:

  1. When our team requests the installation of updates, let them do so, restarting the computer upon completion. These updates usually include critical security updates that will allow us to avoid having points of attack for viruses.
  2. Always have your antivirus enabled and updated. Like the Operating System updates, we must make sure that we have the antivirus up to date.
  3. Do not open unknown or unexpected attachments. If in doubt, check with the sender using a means other than email (to avoid impersonation).
    THINK BEFORE YOU CLICK.
  4. Do not click on unexpected or suspicious hyperlinks in the emails. Even if you think it is something known, it can be anything.
    THINK BEFORE YOU CLICK.
  5. If, despite being clear about all the above, we detect that something strange is happening, quickly communicate with those responsible for security.

 

With these simple steps, we will be able to prevent, avoid or at least attenuate any incidence of the different malwares.
