Having up to date anti-virus software is a necessity but should not be not always counted on as a way to prevent these malware as many malware are rewritten and not always detected by antivirus signatures. Only when these new variants spread across the internet and are exposed to be causing harm are they submitted for analysis to antivirus labs.

No business should be without at least one backup system in place. Server Guru IT Support recommend way to do backups would be to have separate backup systems, one for local backups and another system that sends backup to offsite servers.

A decent backup strategy is in most cases the only way to recover from a cyber-attack.
