Just A Friendly Reminder

Recently, it was World Backup Day on March 31st. In this post I want to share a few articles that talk about the rise of ransomware and how bad it's getting. One important point I do have to make is that this is no longer just a Windows issue. Macs are easily being targeted and getting infected. As I've discussed in the podcast, there's a two step approach to protecting your computer. First, download and maintain an antivirus program. Second, don't click on anything suspicious. Now, this gets complicated when advertising companies get infected and the very ads you click on are what can infect your computer.

Of course, it's one thing to protect your computer. These days, it's all about protecting your data. One main way of doing that is backing up your important files. So, take some time every now and then to make sure your data is safely stored. I'll be talking about this in more detail in the next RapidTech podcast.
