Ransomware is seriously scary stuff. In seconds, your entire system is locked and criminals are demanding big money to give you the key to decrypt your files.

Even the pros are tricked by ransomware. Just look at the Colonial Pipeline attack. After hackers took control of one of the biggest gas pipelines in the country, the company paid $5 million to get its systems back up and running.

Your best defense against ransomware is backing up your valuable data. Even if a criminal gets into your system, you can rest easy knowing you already have your precious photos, family videos, important business documents and everything else securely backed up in a place you can access them any time.

Our pick for safe, secure cloud backup is IDrive, a sponsor of Kim’s national radio show. With IDrive, you can back up Macs, PCs, phones and more all onto one easy-to-use account. You don’t have to bother with different logins and passwords or backing up every device to its own account. It’s so easy.

IDrive uses military-grade encryption to safeguard your data, so you know it’s safe. Don’t just take our word for it. IDrive has won PCMag’s Editor’s Choice award for the best online backup solution seven years in a row!
