There are a lot of threats to businesses nowadays, but ransomware seems to be the worst… or at least, the most feared. It seems as though we can’t mention cyberthreats anymore without mentioning ransomware. Unfortunately, we’re right to do so, and the reason for this is a simple one.
Let’s walk through what a modern ransomware attack might look like, acknowledging all the ways that the affected business would suffer as a result of the infection.
Ultimately, even if the infected business does everything right (other than the infection), by maintaining a backup, wiping data and implementing this backup, and maintaining open and clear communication… it may not be enough.
Ransomware’s impacts are not only costly, but they stick around long after the situation has otherwise been resolved. Preventing it is your best option, but you also need other protections to help defend your business. The backups we’ve already mentioned, user training to help avoid phishing and other methods of infection, and more can all help keep your business—and by extension, your future—safe.
