What is ransomware?
Ransomware is when your data is encrypted or you lose access to your infrastructure and access is offered back in return for a ransom.
It is a little-known fact that hackers can hide in your environment for months completely undetected before making their move.
This tactic is gaining popularity & is contributing to the increase in successful ransomware attacks.
The longer a hacker has access to your network, the less likely it is that they’ll be detected. You see, a lot of security tools only record traffic for a set amount of time.
After that, the data is wiped and there is no information on the unexpected entry to your network.
While they hide in your network, they seek out weaknesses, bypass security & start corrupting your files. All it takes is 1 PC on your network to get infected then it can spread to everything.
If you refuse to pay their ransom & do not have a recent backup you will lose your critical data permanently.
How to stop a Ransomware attack
There is little you can do to stop an attack once it begins.
Cyber attacks such as these cripple entire organisations, loss of data and huge cost of securing your network to ensure it does not happen again & getting fully operational can shut down small businesses.
However, if you remain cautious & ensure you have the right people auditing and monitoring your infrastructure, you can rest assured that you’re taking all the right steps to keep yourself protected.
This is the LAST thing you want to happen to you.
To ensure this does not happen to your business, IT Leaders is offering a security audit for local businesses.
We will review your infrastructure for common indicators that you are an easy target. We will then provide consultation on how to help ensure you are not victim to a cyber attack in future.
We are offering this for just a small, reasonable fee to cover our time to cover all the necessary procedures.
We would like to have a quick chat (no more than 15 minutes) before going ahead to discuss your business, gather some details & book in a time that suits you. You are under no obligation to proceed or buy anything from us.
