Millions of Laptops are lost or stolen each year

5% of your businesses mobile devices will be stolen or lost. That’s the average for businesses. It’s worrying and expensive.

But what’s more distressing is the exposure of confidential company and customer data that’s stored on these devices. Your business could suffer catastrophic results.

Don’t worry though – there’s a simple tool in Windows 10 to protect your company and the data your business owns. It’s called encryption.

Laptop encryption encodes your sensitive data, so that only those who have the correct decryption key can access it. So, if your laptop is encrypted and it is lost or stolen, only those with the correct password can access your data.

Encrypting your laptops is the best way to protect your business from a data leak.

Business Owners Here’s how to spot a ransomware attack before it hurts your business.

One of the most dangerous things that can happen to your business is a ransomware attack.

Automated processes take control of your computers and encrypt all your data, and lock you out. They won’t undo the encryption unless you pay a big fee. Your business is held for ransom.

The reason they can do so much harm is they quietly break into your system a long time before the attack is launched. The one upside of this is you can keep an eye out for symptoms you’ve been breached if you know what to look for.

Here are three ways you can check to see if hackers are already in your network.
