Ransomware is hitting so many companies hard. If you’ve not heard of it, you will soon. Ransomware is an infection that encrypts files on your network such that you cannot access the files. This can be devastating. The best way to deal with ransomware is…

To restore from a recent backup. Be sure to remove the infection prior to restoring your data.

If you discover you cannot restore your files to a satisfactory level, there is an online tool designed to help you obtain the key to unlock your files. The tool is here: https://www.decryptcryptolocker.com/. I’ve not vetted the tool, nor am I suggesting that you use it. If you are in a situation where you feel you have no other option, you may want to give it a try. The tool is created and maintained by some very reputable security companies: Fire Eye and Fox-IT.

Be safe – avoid getting infected with Ransomware by practicing excellent IT security – even at home.

Be sure to test your backups to be sure you can restore if you need to!
