As Anthony mentioned in the video, the most common type of malware is a virus. Viruses can be transmitted through email attachments, USB/Flash drives or by clicking on bad links on websites. Whenever you receive a document through email, you should message the sender through a secure channel to confirm they sent it.
An installed antivirus program on your computer does not mean you are 100% protected from all the cyber threats. Fluid Networks employs a multifaceted solution to protect systems, which includes Antivirus, Firewall and Workstation lockdown. Because antivirus software is less than 100% effective, viruses, especially brand new ones, may be able to bypass some or all of these tools. The onus is on the user to remain alert and identify suspicious emails and websites. If you are ever unsure, don’t take a chance, open a ticket or give Fluid Networks a call to help you take a quick look!
