How to Avoid a Ransomware Attack

avoid ransomware attacks in healthcare
Ransomware attacks happen when malware infiltrates your computer systems and locks your access to files by encrypting them. Once your files are encrypted, the attacker responsible for sending the ransomware out into the world demands a ransom be paid before releasing your data. In healthcare, a ransomware attack constitutes a privacy breach. Several clinics in Calgary have already fallen victim to ransomware. Even though some paid the ransom,  their files were destroyed by the encryption process the attackers used. The good news is, you can prevent ransomware attacks.
