Cyber security is one lesson you don’t want to learn through consequence! You’ve put your heart and soul into your business enterprise and it could be ruined in an instant. If your business has never been a victim of an internet virus or a hacker you might be tempted to disregard the whole subject as scare-mongering.

However, protecting your systems has never been more important. Ransomware has upped the stakes in cyber security where you can find your computer systems literally taken hostage. More than ever, businesses and individuals need to know how to be less vulnerable against such attacks.
