Why Learn about Ransomware?

We’ve made it a point this year to educate clients on the severe threat Ransomware poses to businesses – a point that cannot be stressed enough. So, as a refresher course, here’s what ransomware is and how it can affect your operation:

Ransomware is a malware that hacks into your network and seizes sensitive information. Once in control of your files, it will demand a ransom to unlock the files. A ransomware attack can cost your business precious time and dollars, which is why Benton Technology Solutions is on a mission to help clients protect themselves against this sophisticated hacking technique.

Troy discussed best practices for ransomware defense, conducted tutorials for spotting and combating malware, and answered a wide variety of questions from employees; just another way Benton Tech is empowering clients with the knowledge and vigilance to protect themselves.
