Avoiding Crypto


Best Practices For Avoiding:

Crypto Locker & Other Ransomware, Malware & Viruses

Nowadays it seems like everywhere you turn there is a new internet virus, malware, or something looking to infect your PC to steal your files and personal information. At On Site Services we spend a great deal of time helping customers avoid outside intruders and we want to share some of our best practices with you.

Conduct routine backups of important files, keeping the backups stored offline and not as a direct connection.

Maintain a rotating backup sequence.

Enable and maintain a firewall.

Maintain up-to-date anti-virus and anti-malware software. – Symantec, McAfee, Bitlocker, MalwareBytes,

Operate Under the Principle of Least Privilege, malware operates at the rights of the user so do not run as admin all the time

Keep your operating system and software up-to-date with the latest patches, especially those deemed as “security updates”

Enable POPUP blockers where possible.

Stop using Windows XP as they are an easy target plus Google is dropping support for Chrome as a browser by the end of 2015.

Do not follow unsolicited web links in email.

Always Be Skeptical.
