What is your ransomware remediation strategy?

Avoid making ransom payments.

Cyber attackers are aware that if they can exploit your backup systems, you may be forced to pay ransoms. In the event your backups remain intact, you must decide what to restore and estimate the time it will take. Failing to answer these questions may lead to resorting to ransom payments.

Complicating matters, paying a ransom doesn’t guarantee a solution. Even if you receive a decryption key, the recovery process may extend over several days or weeks. Additionally, there’s no assurance that the hacker provided all necessary information. This downtime in critical applications can negatively impact your profits. Ultimately, restoring from a clean backup is the most effective method to thwart hackers.
