Ransomware is scary.
Such an attack could make it impossible for you to retrieve documents on your computer. So, how do you protect yourself from ransomware? One of the best ways to protect yourself is to create a good backup of your critical data. These backups should be available offline, for example, on a removable hard drive or tape.
Having multiple backups that are stored in more than one location is best. For your work files, be sure to follow guidelines from your IT department.
