What is Malware?
Malware is short for malicious software. Many times it is software designed to secretly run on your computer and attempt to steal information, send out spam emails and even in some instances run processes on your computer system and send the result back to another server somewhere online. Malware is hostile, intrusive and a risk to many corporations throughout the Toronto area.
What can you do to prevent malware from infecting your business computer network?

This includes spam, malware, virus, spyware and any other form of unwanted access in the corporate network. There are many great business firewalls available today.

- Desktop security – Simply running antivirus software on your computer is not enough.

We need to make sure that potential security gaps and systems are updated when security patches are available.

- Education – Educating computer users is the most important piece. Technology can fail from time to time, especially in the first few hours of a serious virus or malware outbreak. Your staff must be able to spot the signs of malicious software. Emails that simply don’t look right, Instant Messaging requests that are out of the ordinary and social media services do pose a risk to corporate security systems.
