Cyber Scams Have Increased with More People Working from Home

Now that so many more Americans are working from home, the online computer landscape has morphed into a virtual feast for Internet predators. Cyber criminals are more plentiful and the number of scams out there is subsequently increasing exponentially.

Here’s just one example. Have you heard of the Russian malware scam? Basically, it can infiltrate any vulnerable Wi-Fi network of a remote worker. Then it restricts access to files until the perpetrator is paid a ransom. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that you will ever regain access to your files or that your sensitive information was not compromised. We ARE talking about dealing with unsavory characters here. As you might also guess, once a malware attack like this has ensued, the result may very well be extended periods of downtime, affecting both work and profits.

These types of computer scams frequently target business networks and then make high dollar demands.
