Is your organization ready for an impending ransomware attack? These attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated, but that doesn’t mean you have to go straight into damage control mode. You can plan ahead for a robust defense that will keep your business up and running regardless of what comes your way. No industry is safe from these attacks, which makes it crucial to develop and implement a strategy to protect your data.
The goal is to achieve a level of cyber resiliency through using the right technologies that can assist in detecting when something occurs that is out of the ordinary and needs immediate attention. While being proactive is vital to any cybersecurity strategy, the people perpetrating these attacks are as innovative as they are dubious, which means you are still at risk of an attack. This is why a recovery plan is also important.
More than 60 percent of all malicious emails come in the form of a ransomware attack. Knowing this, you can anticipate that your employees are going to come across emails, perhaps on a daily basis, that include something that should never be clicked on. They should be educated on what to look for.
Have you tested your backup plan? Most organizations realize the importance of this, yet have not tested their plans. When the attack happens, they don’t know how to react. With cloud-based data recovery and business continuity solutions, you can be completely covered when a cyber criminal works their way around your firewall and other protections.
Partnering with an IT provider who knows how to assist you with the latest technology without exposing you to new risks is something more organizations are looking to today as they map out their digitization efforts.
