I’ve started a new weekly “technology tip” video series as our school’s director of technology. This week’s video is titled, “Ransomware, Backups & Google Drive,” and was prompted by this week’s News9 article, “Virus Hits Moore Public Schools Computer Systems.” This incident involved CryptoLocker, which is a very bad type of malware known as “ransomware.” In this narrated slideshow I review several different backup options in ascending order of cost, including cloud-backup options.

Access additional videos from this series in this YouTube Playlist, and on the Videos page of our Casady School IT Department Support website. Those include last week’s technology tip video, “Upload a New Revision of a Google Drive File” and a video this week for our users of Google Classroom, “Share iPhone Voice Recording to Google Classroom.”

Most of the images and icons I used in this narrated slideshow are from the Noun Project and PhotosForClass.com. I created this presentation using Google Slides (available below) and recorded the screencast using ScreenFlow software.
