People Should Know About Ransomware

In today's world, people in all countries should know about, "ransomware." We are in a digital day and age where everything we do in life runs off some form of a technological device. Whether it's a phone, computer, tablet, or wireless printer information should always be protected. Ransomware is a type of malicious software that threatens to publish the victim's data or perpetually block access to it unless a ransom is paid. There are billions upon billions of dollars spent each year in buying systems and software that will help prevent these hacks from happening.


Speaking from experience of how information can be stolen, I work in the financial industry and dealing with multiple clients and their personal information one day I was blocked from my system and it was a message telling me to call a number. When I called the number, the person acted like they were from the manufacturer of my tablet and that I needed to pay for a software to get my system unlocked. I remembered I had just read up on exactly what ransomware was and figured since the individuals on the phone were talking in another language, that this was just a ploy to get money. So I researched a software that could help me get it unlocked. I now use Rubica. It's an app that I was able to download on my tablet as well as my other electronic devices. Using Rubica you have your own elite cyber experts investigating suspicious events to keep you secure and safe on their private network all the time, from anywhere in the world.
