Ransomware is not an if but a when. Developing your ransomware protection plan, therefore, is not about just being ready to counter the threats of a ransomware attack but being ready with actionable strategies for when the event does happen to start with your data.
IoT is one of the newest conduits for ransomware attacks. In the State of the Network Security 2021 report by Barracuda, 83% of respondents perceived the level of Operational Technology (OT)/Industrial Control Systems (ICS) cyber risk as either critical, high or moderate.
In the Barracuda Networks e-book, Don’t pay the ransom: A three-step guide to ransomware protection, Barracuda lists three focus areas to direct an organization’s strategy: protecting your credentials, securing your web applications and access, and backing up your data.
Key takeaways in this new e-book include:
- The most effective detection and response tools and user training to help protect against credential theft and create a culture of awareness.
- The current best practices to secure web applications and access, stop cybercriminals from exploiting vulnerabilities, and protect your network infrastructure.
- The backup and disaster recovery solutions to ensure you always maintain access to your data and never have to pay a ransom.
