What should I do in the event of a ransomware attack?
It is a scourge for many organizations: ransomware. One unsuspecting user who accidentally clicks on a wrong link in an email and the entire organization can be shut down. Malicious ransomware software encrypts data, files or even entire server systems, using a private-public key pair. The data can only be unlocked using the private key and the attacking party demands ransom for that key.
The best way to protect yourself against this threat is to use up-to-date anti-virus and anti-spam software, but also by informing users about the threats of phishing emails, where this type of virus usually comes from. If you are attacked, a solid recovery strategy can ensure that the damage is limited and that the attack doesn’t cost you a single Bitcoin. DM-P can help you design the right solution for this.
