Are You Prepared for a Worst-Case Scenario?

It's no secret that an increasing number of ransomware attacks and data breaches have taken the world by storm, especially as the rapid adoption of hybrid work models has forced businesses to transition to cloud technologies.

While data is now being accessed and managed in the cloud, the devices and locations from which people are doing their work are often in shared, non-private spaces. These conditions are prime for cybercriminals to swoop in and take advantage of vulnerabilities in our systems.

On the corporate level, significant breaches may be career-ending for company executives, and as the level of attention on attacks rises, so does potential reputational as well as financial damage to the organizations that fall victim.

This checklist will guide you through 8 simple steps that will help not only decrease the likelihood of an organization being targeted with ransomware but also potentially mitigate the damages if and when you are infected.

Your 8-Step Checklist:

  • Make sure that you are running up-to-date end-point security and anti-virus software for all your emails

  • Implement anti-phishing campaigns and block malicious websites

  • Implement monitoring tools across your systems

  • Implement Identity Management and Least Privileged Access
