Although it’s not the latest cyber security threat, “ransomeware” is on the rise. Morning Mike recently had the opportunity to chat with Heather Wagenhals, a Certified Identity Theft Risk Management Specialist. “Ransomeware” is kind of like kidnapping your computer – although the criminals don’t physically take your device, they do take control of it with malicious software. The criminals hope you will pay them a “ransome” to get control of your computer back. Heather offers some great tips and resources on her website, MoneyCreditAndYou.com.
