Ransomware has the dangerous potential to critically destroy your business. It works by holding your data, files, and network to ransom. The resulting damage on your business reputation may be unfixable.
We decided to hire an actual real hacker to conduct a genuine hack. What you are about to see is rarely captured on video. We have recorded both the point of the view of the hacker and the victim. Watch how easy it would be for this to happen to YOUR business. In this cyber attack, our ethical hacker encrypts all the data, until you pay a huge ransom to get it back.
Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts your system and holds your information and data at ransom. If the attack is successful, you will no longer be able to access your files, database, or software.
Usually, a sum of money is demanded by the cybercriminal to gain your access back. It isn’t isolated to just your computer or laptop, but it spreads across your network and file services, essentially paralysing your company.
Within the space of one small minute, your business can go from thriving to being in utter despair as the realisation kicks in that you’ve had an IT breach. Your whole vital system has been compromised. What next?
You find yourself and your team locked out of your network. Panic sets in. All you did was click a link on one email. But that’s all it takes. Phishing emails are designed to look identical to the real deal, so what you believe is an innocent link can end up irreparably damaging your business. A single click is all it took. Once you have shut down the page, you see what has happened. Have you ever felt panic like it before? Would you ever want to?
This is where ACU IT comes in. Firstly, we work proactively to ensure you have ongoing back-ups of all your systems and data. If a breach were to happen, you have your data recently all backed up somewhere safe.
Secondly, we work hard to monitor potential threats in your system. We take care of all your IT security needs. Cyberattacks are a very real threat that brings businesses and organisations to their knees daily. Don’t let it happen to you.
Our Disaster Recovery Services will help to keep your data and business safe and security. And if a disaster strikes, we know how to react and get your systems back up and running.
