It is important to try and establish how the attackers gained access to your network in the first place so you can prevent future ransomware attacks.
According to the National Cyber Security Centre
Law enforcement does not encourage, endorse nor condone the payment of ransom demands.
For this reason it is important that your business has an effective and comprehensive backup and disaster recovery plan in place and that you are confident that your backup includes all the necessary data your business requires to continue running.
Your data is the crux of your business and losing your data can be catastrophic. To protect against this we offer on-premise, cloud and hybrid backup solutions to give the right backup and recovery solution for your demands.
The National Cyber Security Centre website, www.ncsc.gov.uk
, is a great resource and contains helpful information on how ransomware works, how you can prevent it and how to report it should you be the victim of an attack.
