STRATEGIES TO PREVENT RANSOMWARE
As a Chief Information Security Officer, IT manager or Board Member, you probably wonder how to prevent a ransomware attack. Because in today's evolving digital landscape, businesses are increasingly exposed to cyber threats, like ransomware. Especially since "Ransomware As A Service" is a popular business model for cyber criminals.
A ransomware attack can lead to substantial data loss, business downtime, and potential reputational damage. That's why it is important to proactively implement robust preventive measures to mitigate the risk of these attacks. What strategies can you implement to raise your cyber resilience against ransomware?
The hard truth is that you can not always prevent an attack. However, what you can do is minimize the risk. You do this by mitigating weaknesses in your organization and systems. And by being prepared for a cyber incident, so that you can recover as quickly as possible.
Steps to raise your resilience against ransomware
1. Educate Your Employees
The human factor is often the weakest link in cyber defense. Ransomware often infiltrates your systems via phishing emails or malicious websites that unsuspecting users interact with. Regular cybersecurity awareness training can help your team recognize and avoid potential threats. Let Secura help you.
2. Make your attack surface as small as possible
To support this step, Secura offers the External Attack Surface Assessment. You'd be surprised what we find. From stolen credentials on the dark web, to open AWS bucket or hard-coded passwords on Github, and more. Let Secura help you.
3. Be ready to respond to any cyber incident in the best way possible.
To support this, Secura offers Incident Response PRO, a comprehensive incident response service. First, we assess your Incident Response and Forensic Readiness, and we host a Tabletop Cyber Crisis Management Workshop for your team. Should you suffer an attack, we can help you with our 24/7 Incident Response service.
