Do you have the tools/technology in place to guarantee the integrity of your data in the event of a ransomware attack?
When ransomware attacks happen, there are two possible ransomware scenarios: either a user inside the firewall network opens a bad file or link that immediately executes a harmful payload, or the execution of a malicious file that’s been lying in wait for months to bypass restore capabilities executes upon a trigger event.
The first situation often has limited impact that can be quickly remedied with redundancies and reliable backup and recovery programs that can restore data to a specific point in time. The second situation is much more challenging. However, implementing different processes and technologies can render this danger moot.
In this checklist, you’ll get a step-by-step overview of the technology and processes your agency needs in place to guarantee the fidelity of sensitive agency information the event of a ransomware attack.
