🤔Something to think about.....

If you had ransomware on your computers....

✨Do you have a plan for recovery?
✨How long could you be without your documents, files, emails?
✨How much would it cost to recover?
✨How long would it take to recover?
✨What would your insurance cover?
✨Would you have to pay out of pocket to start the recovery process and then insurance will reimburse you?
✨Can you afford to pay out of pocket for recovery?

Can you answer those questions? If not, it's time to sit down with your IT provider and formulate a plan so you CAN answer those questions and be prepared.
