Over the years, IT security has been a big concern among many business organisations. In 2015 and 2016, a large number of cyber incidents involving ransomware were registered at Kaspersky lab. A large ransomware family including ExPetr, WannaCry, Bitman, Onion, Shade, Mor, Locky, CryptXXX, Zerber, Shade, Crysis, Cryrar, Snocry, Cryptodef and Spora tried to extort money from businesses in exchange for their sensitive data. According to an IT Security Risks 2016 Survey, more than 42% of small and mid-size companies were attacked by ransomware. One-third of the enterprises had to pay the ransom demanded by attackers and only 18% of the companies were able to restore their lost data even after paying ransom. That’s why there is an urgent need of a smart and secure anti ransomware solution to prevent any security breach that can bring a business to a standstill.
Most organizations know the risk of security attacks and hence they usually have a IT disaster recovery (DR) plan to protect their businesses. Chances are, you are also following a DR plan for the safety of your business. How would you recognise that your DR plan is robust that it will stand a deadly ransomware attack? Do you recall the Brisbane, BEC Scam 2016 where scammers targeted the Brisbane city council through series of fake invoices? In this scam, the city council lost close to $450,000. This is a clear case of a disaster that happened in terms of cyber-attacks. Business organisations should stay vigilant at all times. A strong DR plan is always recommended for businesses to prevent their data from any kind of security breach.
