Don’t Let Ransomware Take Down Your Business
Ransomware infections have taken down companies large and small, and have crippled government facilities. Don’t let your business be another victim. No B.S. Computer Repair, LLC has services designed to reduce the risk of ransomware to your business. Our managed backups automatically backup your data to both local and remote storage locations.

“The biggest news-maker for 2019, in fact, is the Baltimore City government. The city’s computer system was hit with a ransomware infection in May 2019 that kept the city’s government crippled for over a month. Estimates put the cost to recover at over $18 million dollars, although the cybercriminal behind the malware only demanded $76,000 worth of Bitcoin. The attack reportedly impacted vaccine production, ATMs, airports, and hospitals.
Just about a year earlier, the Atlanta city government spent over $17 million to recover from a virus attack that demanded $52,000 in Bitcoin.
While many chose not to pay the cost for ransomware (and indeed, most security professionals say paying is typically a bad idea anyway), those that do pay up often find their files remain encrypted. After all, placing trust in the good graces of criminals is often leads to disappointment.”Comparitech
