When You Don't Need To Worry About Ransomware

Posted by Darren Thomson on Nov 16, 2016 10:29:10 AM

 Everyone frets and worries about ransomware. Between the hospital that recently managed to avoid it, and ODIN popping up on September 26th, everyone is concerned. Here are three situations in which you don't need to worry about it, though.
