Data Security is critical for all schools. As you may be aware there have been some major ransomware attacks which have caused a lot of problems for computer users. When a computer becomes infected with ransomware it encrypts (or locks) the files so that they can't be accessed.  It will also try to encrypt any linked drives or folders that the infected computer has access to.

The ransomware virus will then demand a ransom from the user to have the files unlocked. We recommend NOT paying any demanded ransom, as this encourages more ransomware, and there is no guarantee that the files will be unlocked.
