Some basic steps after you have been hit:

  • Seize the Workstation
  • Isolate the system from the Network
  • Run system checks
  • Find the infection and remove the attachment


Last but certainly not least make sure you run a training session with employees.  Advocate customers and employees to promote self-reporting and avoid making people feel like they’ll get in trouble for it.
