How a Typical Ransomware Attack Looks Like

A new report from the Danish Centre for Cyber Security spotlights the most common types of ransomware attacks and offers guidance on the best defense strategies and tips on how to avoid them.  

The report reveals a range of possible entry-points in your organization’s IT network and explains the new types of collaboration between different cyber-criminal actors in the rapidly growing ransomware-industry.  

The risk of a ransomware attack is real. As an organization, you also need to prepare not just for an attack itself, but for before and after the attack.  

Once you are infected with malware and your systems and network have been hijacked, your only recourse is to restore your data from your backup. This makes your backup your most critical lifeline, which means you need to keep it isolated with the help of a range of precautions.  

Storing your backup separated from your production data is one of them. Protecting and limiting the access to backup data is also important to ensure integrity. (Read B4Restore’s take on Separation of Duties below).   

Another important defense strategy is employee and management education and awareness. That’s why we highly recommend you read this report from the Danish Centre for Cyber Security (in Danish).
