Ransomware-type viruses are currently the scariest type of virus out on the net!

If contracted, the virus first encrypts your data, so it cannot be accessed.  Then the author demands a predetermined dollar amount (“The Ransom”) to be paid in Bitcoins in exchange for the decryption key to unlock your data.  Sometimes the decryption key works; sometimes it doesn’t.  Yes, it’s a gamble!

One’s only true defense is a solid Disaster Recovery Plan.  Dental Computer Professionals highly recommends a combination of local and cloud backup solutions to protect your company’s sensitive data.  For more information, click HERE.
