So You’ve Been Hit By A Ransomware Attack. Now What?
If you are reading this, then you most likely have been hit by a ransomware attack and discovered that you may need to pay the ransom. Cybercriminals are attacking businesses every day, stealing information and holding companies for ransom. Your information could be out there on the dark web and be used to find vulnerabilities in your network.
Even the best IT departments can find themselves in a state that requires a ransom to be paid. Here are some common scenarios that would require paying the ransom;
- Due to a lack of user education, an employee clicked a link or downloaded a malicious file
- Your backups were not being monitored or maintained and you do not have a current copy of your files
- You had local backups which were infected and you did not have offsite backups beforehand
- Despite your best efforts, you have team members who have important files on their local machine that were not on the server and not backed up
If you fall into one of these or another scenario, there is still hope to get yourself out of trouble. Download our step-by-step guide, created by Braver Technology Solutions CEO Kenny Rounds, for navigating a ransomware attack. You’ll be glad you did.
