Keep Systems Up-To-Date
Make sure your computer runs the newest form of Windows and other software with all the latest reinforcements. Make sure to turn on Windows Security to protect you from bugs and malware (or Windows Protector Security in previous forms of Windows 10).
In Windows 10 or 11, turn on Skilful File Admission to defend your significant native files from illegal packages such as ransomware or other malware.
Get ransomware extraction and retrieval with Microsoft 365 Progressive Protection. If your computer manufacturer does not enable file history, use file history to back up your files.
Store significant records on Microsoft OneDrive. One Drive includes built-in jailbreak, file recovery, and version control, so you can re-establish preceding versions of your files. Your work is automatically stored when you oversee Microsoft Office records on OneDrive. Also make sure you use a safe, contemporary browser like Microsoft Edge.
Keep Monitoring Network
Network monitoring is another tool that can be used to detect ransomware moving through your network. If you’re able to detect the infection in early stages, you could prevent a major data breach from taking place.
Network monitoring can also help you identify gaps in your network and help prevent ransomware from infecting it all together. Maintaining an audit trail can help security experts isolate the sequence of events that led to an attack and can enable them to create better prevention and incident response strategies for the future.
