2017 saw plenty of ransomware attacks, and cyber security experts believe we’ll see many more this year. Needless to say, enterprises are less than happy with that prediction. After all, one of the biggest ransomware attacks last year, Petya, locked away data without any chance of users decrypting their affected files. Imagine losing your sensitive files and folders to ransomware. Scary, right?
Protecting your data from ransomware isn’t easy, but getting started can be. The first step in defending your enterprise from ransomware, or any cyberattack for that matter, is to learn how these kind of attacks work. Getting a better idea of ransomware mechanics—how an attack is launched and how it operates across a network—helps you figure out the best means of defense, which usually involves closing security loopholes in your network.
Of course, not all attacks can be prevented, which is why you need to continuously monitor your network to detect attacks the moment they happen as well. And of course, you need some way to recover from the consequences following an attack.
