Think Before You Click - Avoiding Ransomware
Most of you are aware of the massive ransomware attacks that happened recently across the globe.
We wanted to take this opportunity to remind everyone to be diligent in managing their email. You may be doing everything you can to protect your network, but unfortunately one of the key ways to get infected is something for which you have little control: users clicking things in emails.
If you're not expecting an email from someone, don't open it and don't reply. There could be an attachment or embedded link that's infected. Call the person and ask if they sent the email.
Even if a message is from someone who normally sends you emails, be leery of requests to click links or to send confidential information.
As always, if you think you opened, replied or clicked on something you shouldn't have, notify your technical support right away!
Here are a few educational Ransomware blog articles:
