Although municipalities and small businesses are generally more vulnerable to ransomware attacks than larger companies, it’s worthwhile to know how you can stay safe from the potential impacts at work and/or at home. AIG is committed to keeping you informed about cybersecurity best practices and working to do our part to help protect your information.
As always, be mindful when clicking on links and attachments, especially those that originate from suspicious or unknown senders. If you suspect that your computer has been infected:
- Isolate the infected system. Disconnect the infected system from all networks, and disable the computer’s wireless, Bluetooth, and any other potential networking capabilities. Confirm that all shared and networked drives are disconnected whether wired or wireless.
- Do not power off the computer.
- Consider contacting your local FBI Field Office to report an issue and seek assistance.
