Recently, WannaCry ransomware took the world by storm and showed us all just how vulnerable we are to losing our precious files, photos, videos, etc., stored on our devices. A single click that opened a malicious attachment was all it took to unleash the WannaCry worm, and within hours it spread to more than 150 countries, and collectively cost victims more than $55,000.
If you think this will never happen to you, think again. If you're not taking steps to protect yourself, then it's not a matter of if you'll be hit by a ransomware attack, but a matter of when. And you can't stop at protecting just one single device. Every gadget you own is vulnerable!
Most of us own three to five devices and rely primarily on our laptops, smartphones and tablets. With all of those gadgets, just think about how much data you're creating on a daily basis. Files you may not even realize are important until something unimaginable happens. All it would take is one nasty virus or power crash, and you could lose it all. Or even something as simple as losing your device, or having water damage that makes your device inoperable. Who hasn't dropped their smartphone in the pool on accident?
