Bharat Bhise HNA: What You Need to Know about Ransomware

One of the most common cybersecurity threats Bharat Bhise HNA warns users about is ransomware. This type of cyberattack has been around for years, but it has become more and more widespread over the years. Its victims range from small businesses to large corporations to government offices, and is credited for millions of dollars in losses every year.
Ransomware is a type of malware that takes its unfortunate victims’ files hostage in exchange for money. Once it has invaded a computer or network, it will keep users out until payment is made to the perpetrators.
Like viruses and many other types of malware, ransomware often comes from untrustworthy websites. Sometimes, hackers use phishing emails or messages to get unsuspecting users to click on download links that contain ransomware. In many cases, ransomware does not activate immediately after the user runs its execute command. Instead, it “waits” for a specific period before locking users out of their own computer.

Bharat Bhise HNA: Cybersecurity essentials for mid-sized businesses

According to Bharat Bhise HNA, the decision which information security measures should be used across a mid-sized company’s IT infrastructure and which ones they should do without can be tough, because they may not have adequate financial resources to apply all the existing cybersecurity elements to protect the network. Cybersecurity is an issue that even mid-sized businesses should take seriously because they are already big enough to be targeted by cybercriminals.

Here are the essential security measures every business should have in place:

• A firewall, which scans incoming and outogoing network traffic. It also prevents malicious traffic from reaching your network and possibly damaging it.

• An antivirus software checks all the files downloaded by your employees from external sources, such as the internet or USB flash drive for virus signatures. Regularly updating our antivirus lets you receive alarms each time ransomware, Trojan horses, viruses, and other types of malware attempt t…
