Team Discovery Publishes Article About Protecting Businesses from Ransomware

Ransomware is as pervasive as it is dangerous. Interested parties can learn how to protect their business from it.

Team Discovery Ltd., a web design and web marketing agency based in Surrey providing website building, SEO, social media marketing and full management of online businesses, have published an article on their blog page explaining about how to protect businesses from ransomware.

Ransomware is a type of malware that restricts access to the infected computer system in some way, and demands that the user pay a ransom to the malware operators to remove the restriction.

Ransomware is a hot topic these days. Seems like everywhere there’s another story about a new ransomware threat affecting businesses. Unfortunately, this cyber-crime fad is not going away anytime soon.

Team Discovery considers it dangerous but not insurmountable. That’s why they published an article on their blog page explaining about how to protect businesses from it.

Team Discovery have also advised they may be able to help businesses recover depending on the severity of the problem.

The blog article is posted at their blog page at https://www.teamdiscovery.eu/protecting-businesse-ransomware/.

Researchers Reveal How to Make Yourself Digitally Invisible to Snoopers Tracking You Online

Most people are under the impression that by being online it is impossible to avoid data snatchers. However, researchers have found that there are ways to cover your digital tracks.

These researchers believe that it is important to educate the public on how to fight against digital surveillance, how to keep your personal information private, and how there is a great need for better regulations. For example, data thieves can load a single pixel onto a website without you knowing, collecting all sort of information about the browser, the device you’re using, and most importantly, you.

Some tricks of how to be invisible online include using cash instead of E-ZPass which announces your location to readers that could be waiting anywhere. You can also decline to share your location in iOS’s ‘Find My Friends’ app. One useful tool is TrackMeNot – this creates fake queries to stop search engines from creating a profile on you, confusing browsers. Another tool ADNAUSEUM, registers a click on all the ads in your ad blocker and stops any attempt to build a profile filled with your likes and preferences.

Some may be tempted to opt out of online use with all the risks involved; however this is a wildly impractical solution. Co-author, Finn Brinton, of Obfuscation: A User’s Guide for Privacy and Protest explained that disconnecting would mean leading ‘the life of an undocumented migrant labour of the 1920s, with no internet, no phones, no insurance, no assets, riding the rails, being paid off the books for illegal manual work’.

Brinton and his co-author Helen Nissenbaum stress that obfuscation won’t make you completely invisible to constant surveillance, but will educate the public about the need for stronger regulations that protect us from organisations who want to use our own data against us. For example, your data could be used in the future to increase a plane ticket the next time you book a vacation, suggest pricey goods the next time you shop online or hinder your chances of getting a loan because something about your data suggests you are a credit risk. These are just a few methods used by firms which overstep our boundaries.
