Blog Post Shout Out: Further Tips To Prevent Ransomware

With growing numbers of organizations, companies and individuals being affected by ransomware we need to take precautions before we are affected so that if the worse should happen we can recover.

For the second time this month I wish to provide a respectful shout-out to the following blog post that provides further tips on preventing ransomware that were not present in previous posts.

For example, using the principle of least privilege (not using a privileged user account on your device when you don’t have to e.g. for everyday general use), security awareness (being aware/having knowledge of current computer security trends and knowing what to avoid/which warning signs to look out for) as well as a new security feature developed by Microsoft for Office 2016 in an effort to prevent the spread of ransomware. I hope that you will find the post linked to below useful:

Thank you.
