Ransomware is EVERYWHERE. A large problem is when businesses are impacted and get shut down for days, they will rarely tell their customers or suppliers. It’s embarrassing and could result in the trust of their customers being eroded. Some businesses with privacy records are legally required to report that they have been hacked and inform those who may have had their private data compromised.
It’s not a question of “Could you be Compromised” but “When will you be Compromised”.
When this happens to your company or organization, here is good advice to follow.
Three Steps after a Ransomware Attack
- Do NOT pay the ransom
- Contact the FBI immediately www.ic3.gov
- Verify if your backups are available and working *
* Ransomware may be in your backups!
Recover from your backups if possible and bring in help to lock down your security and defenses to avoid future attacks from Ransomware and other Cyberattacks.
