How Can You Prepare?
Put together an Incident Response Plan
This will guarantee that all company stakeholders understand what to do in the case of a cyberattack. You will cover everything from incident detection and response to how to communicate the events that follow.
Backup your data & secure your backups
The most essential aspect of every firm is its data. Without backups, the only method to recover data after a ransomware attack is to pay the ransom. It is best practise to test the backup and recovery processes in order to reduce the effect of data loss and speed up the recovery process.
Use security software and ensure up to date
Though not to be solely relied upon, having a robust end-to-end security solution at the forefront of your network is crucial.
The most common entry point for ransomware is via a malicious link or file, typically sent in an email and opened by a user. Ensuring all your users are aware of what they should be looking for is key to mitigating the risk.
