Treat your passwords like your underwear

The ICO blog has a great post on ransomware, the despicable act of holding a business to ransom by preventing access to the files on their computer. These things always begin with a virus, usually through a spam email. Once infected your computer is locked down and access to your important files restricted. The pirates then issue a demand for payment to permit access again... or they will delete them. This is when having external backups comes in handy! Of course, the best defense is to avoid catching the virus in the first place.
