Samsys Security Tips


Samsys leaves you 3 fundamental tips to better protect against attacks:

1. Stay informed 

Always be careful when opening an unfamiliar link or opening an unfamiliar attachment. If the site does not start with “HTTPS”, be suspicious.

Remember that it is possible to clone emails and impersonate another person/entity. 

Legitimate companies never ask for passwords via email, so never send this information via email.

Attacks from ransomware often start on devices endpoint.

2. Be cautious

At no time use email to send very personal data, give preference to the telephone.

Be Backups whenever you remember, so you can have peace of mind about recovering your data. Create a global folder where you can store all the
most important information and make subfolders within that, which facilitates the replication of information. Automate the Backups to avoid human errors.

3. Strengthen security layers

The more layers of security that are in place, the more likely you are to be able to protect your equipment and systems from attacks.

Bet on systems that, in addition to detecting threats, block the passage of these malware.
