A staggering amount of infections are coming through emails that are designed to get you to click and open an attachment or unzip a file. Some are even designed to look like they come from someone you know.
If you are not expecting an attachment or the email sender address looks a little odd don’t open it. Instead take a moment to pick up the phone or email the sender yourself to confirm they did send you an attachment. A few minutes of checking could save you hours, possibly days of lost time and income that may result from a computer virus.
But I’m an unlikely target.
We understand that antivirus, antimalware and firewalls can seem expensive at first glance. Many practice's can’t see how they would be a target and therefore choose to save by not investing in proper protection.
Before you make that choice just take a moment to think like the bad guys.
Are you more likely to target the large mansion with the sports car on the drive and the heat sensor alarm system, the three drooling guard dogs, the automatic lights and the spiked fence or the small house next door with no fence, no lights, no guard dogs, no alarm and a window slightly ajar?
Sometimes it really is necessary to keep up with the neighbours.
