CyberFortress CEO Bret Piatt was featured on MSP Insights discussing the impact of Ransomware and how to mitigate the threat in the article, “How to Neutralize The Threat of Ransomware.”
According to Veeam Research, a ransomware attack is launched every 11 seconds. Bret emphasises the significance of the relationship between Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and clients as a partnership is effective in the Disaster Recovery Plan.
A properly trained knowledge workforce greatly reduces the chance of a ransomware attack. Incorporating measures such as multi-factor authentication and training for employees on phishing schemes can reduce the ability of a successful malware attack when combined with technology-based defenses.
The recovery process in a Backup and Recovery plan is as significant as data replication and storage. Regular testing, including replicating disaster with complete failover to another location, ensures the process proceeds as quickly and smoothly as possible.
Create separate encryption for your primary and backup data so a single attack does not compromise both entirely. Regular audits of the system ensure that only the required data is protected at any given moment.
