Insurance companies are now limiting the coverage and may refuse to pay the premium for the exploit if security best practices, including backup strategy, were not followed.

What is Ransomware?

Ransomware is a form of extremely harmful malware that infects network devices and data centers. Cybercriminals seek to exploit system and security vulnerabilities to gain access to your business’ data, encrypt it, and demand payments to make it accessible again.

Over the years, ransomware has significantly grown in volume, frequency, and strength. The complexity and sophistication of recent attacks show that outright ransomware prevention is impossible. To stay protected and mitigate growing ransomware threats, it’s vital for organizations to continuously evaluate and deploy advanced security solutions and implement best practices to prevent being hit.

Ransomware Impact on Business

The ransomware produces devastating effects on businesses. Organizations that suffer a ransomware attack experience disrupted business operations, data loss, downtime, and significant financial damages.

The sharp increase in the number of high-impact incidents underscores the importance of providing robust protection to your business-critical systems, workloads, and data in avoiding fierce ransomware consequences. Below you can see a complete list of negative effects ransomware can cause to organizations.

Best Practices for Protection

Considering the possible impact of ransomware, companies need to deploy multiple levels of protection to ensure the safety of their data. This is particularly important for organizations operating under strict compliance and security regulations, where the risk of data loss should be brought to a minimum.

As paying the ransom doesn’t guarantee that the encrypted data will be released, companies must focus their efforts on building a ransomware-resilient environment. This environment protects their critical infrastructure, keeps their backup files safely stored in a pristine state, and ensures quick operations recovery when an attack occurs.

Below are several important steps you need to take in order to ensure security.

Infrastructure Security

Data protection starts at the core. Your infrastructure should be able to resist the attack using secure hardware, network micro-segmentation, end-point protection, and threat intelligence. You need visibility into your environment at all times to identify the attack early and contain it on time.

Immutable Backups

Today's ransom attacks are targeting backups to disable recovery. Deleting or encrypting backup files could paralyze the business and its ability to recover. Using the Veeam Cloud Connect immutability feature, you can deploy a secondary, immutable copy of your backup to ensure advanced availability.

Disaster Recovery as a Service

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) helps you ensure the availability of your data by replicating it to secure cloud environments. Depending on your RTO and RPO goals, you should set up full or partial replication to be able to restore your data quickly in case of an attack or disaster.
