With so many lawyers, litigation support professionals, paralegals and other members of the legal services industry working from home (and using personal devices to store client data), the importance of taking any and all preventative steps to protect against cyberthreats cannot be overstated. Especially, with the runaway ransomware trends we are currently seeing.
In this ESI Survival Guide video segment, we explore a feature that is part of the Microsoft Defender suite of cybersecurity controls in Windows 10 that, though extremely important in today’s cyberthreat landscape, is still rather obscure to many.
I’m talking about the “Manage Ransomware Protection” feature.
Here you will learn how easy it is to enable it, and you will also learn that, though effective, it isn’t a perfect solution (nothing ever is). I walk through two quick and easy ways to enable ransomware protection in Windows 10 while showing you all the clicks as I go.
