Some Potential Help with Ransomware

Ransomware is on the rise and statistics are pointing toward healthcare as one of the major targets of the people behind the attacks.
 
I’ve tweeted, blogged, and written an article about it recently.  It has already struck dental offices and more are sure to follow.
 
The best way to combat this problem is with good consistent redundant backups.  To make the backup process as foolproof as possible, I recommend DDSRescue.  I have this system running in my office and sleep better knowing that they are on my side.
 
Recently, I also came across an article that mentioned a website No More Ransom which has information to help you in case you’ve been crippled with ransomware and don’t know where to turn.  Obviously, if you have a good sequential backup, you just restore from it and all is well.  However, if you are already infected these people may be able to help.
 
I haven’t used their services, but the website looks interesting…
