27 Jul Disaster Recovery: When Ransomware Strikes
Ransomware attacks are skyrocketing in popularity – approximately $1 Billion spent in 2016 alone to free networks and data from hackers’ grasps. Ransomware attacks occur when a hacker infiltrates your network, locks up everything and demands payment in return for the digital key. If that demand isn’t met, everything you’ve worked on goes out the window. And, while backing up data prior to an attack occurring is a great way to take some of the power away from cyber attackers, it shouldn’t be the only weapon in your disaster recovery arsenal.
There’s a lot to take into account when it comes to creating a disaster recovery plan. Not only do you need to identify and locate critical systems, but a review process should be in place to make sure nothing is in immediate danger from threats, natural or manmade. When a disastrous event occurs – anything from an “act of God” to a debilitating ransomware attack – short and long-term plans need to be mobilized immediately so that your business can continue uninterrupted.
