How to secure your pc from Ransomware?

Ransomware attacks is on all-time high. Every week or month there is a new variant coming out. Cisco says that Ransomware attacks are growing more than 350 percent annually. If you are curious how ransomware spreads, I have answered for ‘How does ransomware get on people’s computers?’ and how to avoid them in information security stackexchange.
