Fake AV Shows Up in Toronto Business

Toronto Antivirus Support

Security is an absolute necessity for any business to be successful. Internet security is one area where many businesses have to be most careful. Cyber criminals have a variety of new and clever ways to infiltrate company networks and wreak havoc. For small businesses, a security breach that compromises client information could be devastating. Many small businesses don’t survive such breaches. Their doors close forever, leaving customers without a place to go for valuable products or services and, more important, putting people out of work.

That’s why it’s so important for small-business owners to do all that they can to ensure that their networks are secure. One way of doing this is by using anti-virus or AV software. But what can a business leader do if he falls victim to cyber criminals’ latest device, FAKEAV? Not a lot. FAKEAV is just another type of malware that business leaders have to avoid introducing into their companies’ networks.

Trend Micro, one of the world’s leading anti-virus software manufacturers has written a white paper to help people recognize and avoid becoming victims of FAKEAV.

According to Trend Micro’s white paper, “One key weakness in an organization is a user who may unknowingly open a malicious email attachment or click a URL that redirects to a malicious site. This paper aims to educate users on the different social engineering techniques cybercriminals use to proliferate their malicious creations, particularly FAKEAV. An educated user will be more cautious with what he/she does, which will result in fewer malware infections.”

So, take the time to get educated and read this white paper that Trend Micro has prepared. One thing you don’t want to do is allow yourself or your employees to go around unaware of the latest clever trick that cyber criminals use to invade company networks. It’s impossible to protect yourself against everything, but informed users are less vulnerable.
