What threats do I need to protect my system from?

When you purchase an IT solution you must protect your data and software from numerous attacks & programs designed to steal your data or bombard you with junk mail and irritating popups.

These threats are caused by:-

Virus software – A piece of malicious software which causes you system to malfunction or destroys your valuable data

Malware – Annoying popups which appear on your web pages and try to steal your data or your trick you intro paying money to get rid of them

Ransom Ware – This is where a hacker gets access to your system and inserts a ‘time-bomb’ in your system to destroy or encrypt all your files.  This infection is normally followed by a ransom note demanding money to get your data back again.

SPAM – This is where companies send you numerous e-mails or messages advertising a product that you do not want.

Phishing – This is an attempt to trick someone into giving information over the internet or by email that would allow someone else to take money from them, for example by taking money out of their bank account
