If your business operates on Windows computers, be on the lookout. Cybercriminals created malicious computer software, called CryptoLocker, which can invade your computer, encrypt your data, and then demand you pay a ransom. Afterwards, you have roughly 72 hours to pay the ransom of at least $200 in bitcoins. If you don’t pay the ransom on time, the price can go up to $2,000. Or don’t pay and lose your data forever, which likely won’t be an option if CryptoLocker encrypted files critical to operating your business, such as legal documents, payroll forms, and customer information.
