HOW TO AVOID A RANSOMWARE ATTACK

The best way to avoid being exposed to ransomware, or any type of malware, is to be a cautious and conscientious computer user. Malware distributors have gotten increasingly savvy, and you need to be careful about what you download and click on.

  • Monitor activity on your network – Most breaches start months before the ransom is demanded. The breach could be detected when the proper tools are in place.
  • Keep operating systems, software, and applications current and up to date.
  • Maintain proper Access Controls based on the principles of least privilege.
  • Make sure anti-virus and anti-malware solutions are set to automatically update and run regular scans.
  • Back up data regularly and double-check that those backups were completed.
  • Secure your backups. Make sure they are not connected to the computers and networks they are backing up.
  • Follow the 3-2-1 Backup Strategy – You should have THREE copies of your data (your production data and 2 backup copies) on TWO Different types of media with ONE copy off-site for disaster recovery.
  • Work toward a Zero-Trust Security Architecture.
  • Create a continuity plan in case your business or organization is the victim of a ransomware attack.
