Hackers are increasingly targeting small to midsize businesses with viruses, phishing and vishing attacks, and social engineering. These thieves will do whatever they can to try to infiltrate your defenses. Ransomware attacks are perhaps the most insidious of all.
Ransomware attacks are a growing problem for individual computer users and your entire network. During a successful ransomware attack, the hackers take over your network and meet legitimate login attempts with a denial of service message. The FBI investigates thousands of complaints every year. Learn what you can do to keep your Chicago business from becoming a statistic.
What Can Infiniwiz Do to Help You Before, During, and After a Ransomware Attack?
Before a ransomware attack happens, we take a look at your current setup and suggest cost-effective ways to defend your sensitive data. While it's important to upgrade your hardware and software tools, helping your employees recognize and avoid hacking attempts is just as crucial to safeguarding your system from attacks that are unpacked from emails, text messages, and even Facebook ads.
During a ransomware attack, your system is shut down and you may receive a request for money in exchange for access to your network. A lot of things are happening, such as:
- If you have filed a complaint with the FBI, agents may be on-site gathering information.
- Depending on your state's laws, you have varying obligations to notify your customers whose data was compromised.
- You may or may not decide to pay the ransom to gain access — most organizations do not.
- In any case, you need to begin recovering your data from backups as soon as possible.
Hackers often infiltrate your system months before they launch a program that exploits weaknesses in your firewall and other security assets. If you've prepared for the unthinkable, you may already have a cybersecurity insurance policy that can reimburse you for some of the costs of recovery.
After a successful recovery, it's time to assess the damage to your business. Some recoveries take weeks or months and may force the impacted organization out of business.
There's a way to protect your company from experiencing this scenario — contact Infiniwiz today for an evaluation of your security systems.
