My introduction

(Gabriel Clifton) #1

I work for a small school district in west Texas and we thought we were doing a good job smacking users around, I mean training our users on what to look for in websites and in emails to avoid viruses, malware, and ransomeware until last week when a user opened and attachment in their email from an unknown sender and we got hit with our first ransomeware. Told the user sorry they lost the files on their computer and luckily only had to restore three folders on one server from backup. The user should have saved everything they had on their desktop into one of the network folders and they would have been backed up.
