What can you do to protect yourselves and what do we do at Start Software to protect the servers we operate for our clients?
This is the advice from the National Cyber Security Centre and it is pretty straightforward:
- keep your organisation's security software patches up to date and use recent versions of Windows
- use proper antivirus software services, and
- most importantly for ransomware, back up the data that matters to you, because you can't be held to ransom for data you hold somewhere else.
This is exactly what we do for our clients and we also employ complex passwords for servers and location-based security so that servers are only accessible from specific trusted locations.
We are happy to give advice to our clients at any time about the security of their servers and systems, so please do contact us if you have any concerns or questions at all.
