Safeguarding Your Business from Ransomware: What You Need to Know from Indigo Data's Experience
As retail businesses continue to be targeted by ransomware and other cyber threats, it’s essential that they take steps to protect themselves. Last month, Indigo Books & Music Inc. reported that its systems had been blocked by ransomware. This attack serves as a stark reminder that no business is immune from cyber threats, and that having effective security measures in place is essential for any business that handles customer data.
At TLC Solutions, we understand the importance of protecting businesses from cyber threats. That’s why we’ve developed OneLock, a comprehensive security solution for retail businesses. OneLock provides the features you need to ensure your business is protected, including advanced encryption, two–factor authentication, and secure data storage. With OneLock, you can be confident that customer data is safe from malicious actors.
In addition to using OneLock, there are a number of best practices that retail businesses should follow to protect themselves from ransomware and other cyber threats. First and foremost, businesses should ensure that all of their systems are running the latest version of the software. Outdated software is vulnerable to cyber attacks, so it’s important to keep your systems up–to–date. Another important security measure is to use strong passwords for all systems and accounts. Password managers can be used to generate and store complex passwords, making it easy to keep track of them. Additionally, businesses should use two–factor authentication whenever possible, as this adds an extra layer of protection. It’s also essential to have an up–to–date backup of your data in case of a cyber attack. Having a backup makes it easier to restore any data that is lost during an attack, so it’s important to ensure that your backups are regularly updated and stored off–site. Finally, retail businesses should be aware of the potential risks posed by their employees. Employees should be trained on cybersecurity best practices, and they should be discouraged from using personal devices for work. Additionally, businesses should have policies in place that restrict access to sensitive data and systems to those who need it.
