Dealing with Ransomware
The best way to deal with a ransomware attack is to be prepared. Senior consultant Trey Turner encourages companies to not only plan, but also to test those plans. He emphasizes the importance of being able to rapidly detect, contain, and recover from ransomware threats. He also notes that identifying the root cause of successful attacks is also a critical step to ensure that any defensive gaps are closed and you won’t be reinfected.
– The first and foremost step of dealing with ransomware is to plan ahead. Tabletop exercises are one tactic that can help you prepare for how you will respond to an attack when it does happen.
– In preparing to deal with ransomeware, make sure you have the ability to detect, contain, and recover from an attack in a timely manner.
