Prevent Ransomware

Reduce Ransomware Risks

Apply Foundational and Actionable Safeguards to reduce risk of a ransomware attack

How do you scope ransomware risk?

The first step is to establish a software and hardware asset inventory. Next identify where your data lies and which accounts have access to it.  Review effectiveness of your  backups, vulnerability and patch management programs and security configurations of your systems.

How can Ransomware attacks be prevented?

Train your users on how to detect malicious links. Apply email content filters to detect and intercept malicious links. Enable MFA for all externally accessible services and privileged accounts. Have offline backups and test your backups regularly. Implement security monitoring for timely detection and isolation of malicious programs.

What happens if you pay Ransomware?

Paying a ransom doesn’t guarantee you or your organization will get any data back. It also encourages perpetrators to target more victims and offers an incentive for others to get involved in this type of illegal activity.
