Wanna Cry Ransomware | Patch and Prepare 2017

Ransomware Strikes Computers in 99 Countries

If you have been keeping up to date with the WannaCrypt ransomware story, you know that this is big news. You have also, probably thought to yourself: “how can I protect my computer, or my companies’ data?” Well, in this video: we take a look at the basic first steps to protecting yourself, not only from this version, but from ransomware in general. For a more in depth look at what you can do to protect yourself or your business, I have links to newsletters from Sophos and Microsoft at the bottom.

The main thing to take away from this video:

  1. Always keep Windows up-to-date
  2. Always have a reliable up-to-date antivirus (link to Sophos Home at the bottom)
  3. If you own a business have an Antivirus and a Managed Firewall (links below)
  4. DO NOT pay for decryption of this ransomware – reports indicate that this instance does not provide decryption in return for ransom.
