Computer Security Edinburgh
Years and lifetimes of treasured memories can be wiped out in the blink of an eye. Irreplaceable pictures and videos of loved ones gone forever. Open an obscure email attachment that you’ve found in your inbox and the damage is done. On more occasions than we’d like we’ve had to tell an unsuspecting customer their data is gone. Paying the ransom fee these criminals often ask to get your memories back just make matters worse! Once they have access they can cause mayhem and often heartache into the bargain.
In today’s digital world people’s whole life can be at the fingertips of unscrupulous, heartless, faceless crooks. Thankfully, if the correct steps are taken to defend your data they’ll give up and move on to somebody who’s not prepared. There are millions of them out there and what you need to do is make sure you’re not one of them.
What can you do?
Prevention is by far and away the best form of defence. There are a multitude of different security products out there, some better than others, some in fact as crooked as the crooks they pretend to be protecting you from. At Entire IT we can advise you on the most suitable product for your setup, supply it, install it and configure it so you can rest easy, safe in the knowledge your precious data is safe from prying eyes.
The internet is littered with malware, viruses, etc etc, some of it reasonably harmless whose sole intention is to direct you to their website to entice you to purchase their products. Some of it extremely dangerous that can have your identity stolen, your bank account emptied, and much more besides.
Be on Guard
The criminals are forever changing tact, phone calls to unsuspecting users claiming to be from Microsoft. Emails claiming to be a relative who is stuck somewhere in deepest Congo and just need a few thousand pounds transferred to a bank account or special offers for holiday homes, free flights and all expenses paid…they just need a small deposit from your credit card! The list goes on.
Using a mixture of common sense and the security tools at your disposal will keep them at bay. If you’re ever in any doubt…don’t do it! We’re here to help and we charge nothing for advice! Get in touch if there’s anything that you’re not sure of! Cyber crime is on the up and if you’re not prepared to defend yourself from it, often it can be too late. Organised gangs are operating on a global scale and the financial rewards for them are almost infinite. Where data security is concerned, prevention is the best form of defence.
