No doubt you’ve been seeing, hearing or reading about it in the news.  The ‘WannaCry’ ransomware attack has caused the shutdown of hundreds and thousands of computer systems from around the world,  but what was the impact on Australia and how can you stay safe from this kind of threat?

Yesterday I spoke with Tim Falinski from Trend Micro Australia – Listen below.

To ensure you have the highest level of protection, Trend Micro encourages their users to:

1. Make sure you are using the latest version of Trend Micro Security.

2. Make sure to turn on Trend Micro Security’s 4th layer of ransomware protection: Folder Shield designed to specifically protect against ransomware, protecting your files against encryption.

3. Make sure your Windows PC has been updated with the latest security updates. Trend Micro recommends turning on Microsoft Automatic Update.
