Ransomware Response Plan

Ransomware Response Plan

Managed Security


What is Ransomware?

Ransomware or cryptolocker is a type of malware that can be covertly installed on a computer without knowledge or intention of the user. It can stay asleep or spread without user interaction until it receives a command from the hacker to encrypt files or completely lock the computer.

What is a Ransomware Response Plan?

Based on analysis of each phase, we build a multilayered security model around the IT infrastructure. The outermost protection layer targets the very first stage of the attack, and a successful attack has to breach all the detection/prevention controls at each layer.

We accept the fact that hacking attacks such as ransomware are inevitable and we help you prepare for the worst. We also discuss paying the ransom and explore the possibilities of recovering the data without paying the ransom.

This plan, once built out, works well not only for ransomware, but for all Cyber Security Threats your company may be exposed to.

Critical Components of a Well-Planned Security Posture

1. Unified Threat Management (UTM) firewall and security aware network fabric (including Wi-Fi)

2. Endpoint protection that includes advanced security capabilities (not just anti-virus)

3. Cloud-based or off-premise Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery Solution

4. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) wherever possible (on-premise and cloud solutions)

5. Secure Virtual Private Network (VPN) with MFA for remote access

6. Advanced Threat Protection for e-mail systems

7. Regular phishing tests for end-users to assist in reducing risk and overall education

8. Proactive security incident monitoring for on-premise and cloud/3rd party systems

9. Regular cyber awareness training for end-users
