Plan, Protect, and Mitigate

A ransomware attack can be an organization’s worst nightmare without proper planning and protection. Whether a large or small company, ransomware does not discriminate. Protect your data and your assets from ransomware attacks with proper planning, protection, and mitigation.

Protect Your Data

Ransomware attacks involve encrypting data that is essential to your organization and holding it hostage for payment. Ransomware planning, protection, and mitigation services help keep your data safe from ransomware attacks.

Avoid Unplanned Downtime

By actively planning against ransomware attacks, you’ll avoid unplanned downtime within your organization that would otherwise cost you.

Avoid ransomware attacks

Our ransomware planning services work to strategize against ransomeware attacks to help protect your data and mitigate threats.

Ransomware planning

Whether you’re a large organization or a small business, we’ll create a strategic plan to prevent data loss, help you avoid catastrophic financial loss, and help you respond in the event of a ransomware attack.

Ransomware Protection

The target of ransomware attacks is your data. Attackers will encrypt your files and lock them with a passcode in exchange for payment. Our strategic plan focuses on what matters most, protecting your data.

Ransomware Mitigation

Ransomware attacks can cause catastrophic damage to your organization. We work to mitigate any damage incured from an attack and help you respond to any incidents.

More Service Information

One of the best ways to plan for a ransomware attack is to understand how ransomware can infect your computer or network. Some of the most common ways in which ransomware can work its way onto your systems include:

  • Internet tools and applications
  • External devices such as external hard drives and USB drives
  • Emails that contain malicious attachments and links
  • Malicious websites that can download and install malware with or without a user’s knowledge
  • Malicious online advertising that contains dangerous links that can install malware

Ransomware response plans can look different depending on the size and structure of your organization. Our ransomware planning services work to create a custom strategic plan that addresses how your organization will:

  • Communicate in the event of an attack and coordinate with each other 
  • Isolate devices, machines and backups
  • Review and understand options to move forward 
  • Commence the recovery process of your data and systems

We’ll work out disaster recovery options to help you plan and prepare for a ransomware attack of any scale.

The best way to protect yourself against, or in the event of a ransomware attack is to have a secure backup of your files. This way, if your data is infected by malware and held for ransom, you can avoid paying a ransom (paying a ransom is usually not advised) and recover your data. Our ransomware planning services work to protect your organization’s network and devices to prevent a ransomware attack before it happens. This process includes:

  • Installing anti-virus software on all devices, software, and web applications that your organization utilizes
  • Updating and patching your computers, devices, and software applications
  • Secure local and remote endpoints and access points
  • Creating strong credentials and user awareness training

 

To mitigate ransomware attacks on your organization and users, we work to educate your organization on, as well as implement best practices such as:

  • Employee training for ransomware protection and mitigation
  • Data and file backups
  • System and network-level protections
  • Insurance
  • Software

 

F.A.Q.

What is ransomware?

Ransomware is a form of malicious software that infects a network or computer to restrict data and hold it hostage in exchange for payment. Typically, one is alerted of a ransomware attack through on-screen alerts with information about the damage and payment instructions.

What are the impacts of ransomware attacks?

Depending on the scale of the attack, ransomware can impact an organization severely and cause temporary or permanent loss of important data, unplanned operational disruptions, financial losses, and potential reputation damage to the organization affected, and more. 

How does ransomware get onto my computer or network?

There are many ways that ransomware can infect your computer or network. Some of the most common ways ransomware is spread is through phishing emails, social media messages, and drive-by downloading.

Should I ever pay a ransom?

Many law enforcement agencies do not recommend that you pay a ransom as it enables cyber criminals to continue ransomware attacks. Paying a ransom does not guarantee that you will get your data back, and your system may still be compromised after which can lead to repeat attacks.
