With concern mounting for businesses of all sizes, Fitzrovia IT is committed to prevention as opposed to intervention, so we advise businesses to conduct regular pen tests.
Over the past few years, malicious software that uses encryption to hold data for ransom has been on the rise. The sole purpose of ransomware is to extort money from its victims. It finds its way onto a PC by infiltrating a security flaw in weak software, or by tricking a user into installing it.
The Windows 7 'end of life' will pose an end to bug fixes, security patches, and new functions. With the recent ransomware attack on Travelex, businesses need to ensure that they do not leave themselves open to similar problems. Unfortunately, those that fail to make the switch from Windows 7 will be at an increased risk.
