Ransomware, a new type of computer virus, mainly spreads in the form of mail, Trojan horse, and USB flash drives. Much like other kinds of malware, ransomware most often enters a company through email via phishing attempts, when a user opens a malicious attachment or utilizes a compromised website or web application. These attacks almost always enter an organization at a user’s desktop or laptop.
Once the process starts, ransomware will encrypt data of known file types as quickly as possible before it is detected by the organization. As files are encrypted by the ransomware, they are held hostage from the user, requiring a ransom be paid before the user can access those files again or else the data is forever lost. Ransom notes promise delivery of a key to encrypt your data after payment is received, but there is no guarantee.
Ransomware and ransomware attacks are a top concern for enterprise customers today. Ransomware is big business and attackers are relentless in their pursuit to develop new, creative ways to infiltrate corporate networks and IT environments to seize data and hold it hostage. The key is to be resilient and to be able to restore at scale.
Ransomware has quickly emerged as one of the most dangerous cyberthreats facing both organizations and consumers, with global losses now likely running to billions of dollars each year. According to relevant data, global ransom ware damage costs predicted to exceed $20 billion by 2021.
While DR practices have proven to be an effective way to recover from a ransomware attack, it is only a part of a comprehensive strategy that should be put in to play to defend an organization from failing victim to a ransomware attack. When it comes to ransomware, there are many preventative steps that can be taken to contain the threat facing an organization such that the need for recovery is reduced or eliminated.
In general， these defense mechanisms include but are not limited to :
- Firewall & Network Segregation
- Email & Span Filters
- User Security Awareness Training Programs
- Endpoint Scanning ( Anti-virus or Anti-malware )
- Malware Detection & Isolation
- Security Vulnerability Patching
The best measures include several depths of defense that help prevent, contain and recover from the damage caused by ransomware.
Once organizations fall victim to a ransomware attack, files are locked down. And if the latest backup is from last night, last week, or, even last month, the questions become, “How much data can we stand to lose?” and, “What’s this going to cost the business?”
Data protection is the last line of defense, and data and business continuity must be firmly controlled by establishing a complete disaster recovery system.
At present, trends indicate the likelihood of an attack is now not a matter of if, but when. With the right data protection strategy in place, it is possible to greatly mitigate the impact of attacks on your business.
