How to Take Preventive Measures Against Cyber Attacks?
Educating the end-users on cybersecurity by training and testing breeds caution. When they are aware of and understand the risks associated with their behavior, it reduces the risk to a company.
Fremont, CA: The disaster's face is changing. Ransomware and other cyber-attacks are becoming an increasingly common threat to small and medium-sized companies.
Cybercriminals and nation-states are constantly evolving and expanding their attack methodologies, targeting companies with double-extortion ransomware attacks, COVID-themed phishing attacks, and opportunistic attacks made possible by the widespread adoption of remote working.
Orthodox disaster recovery (DR) plans, unfortunately, are unlikely to suffice. Obtaining the data following a successful ransomware attack necessitates a highly personalized disaster recovery strategy, schedule, and capabilities, which is why cyber-attack recovery is a more nuanced use case.
The key to better protecting a company is an adaptive risk management plan that integrates data into a functional and agile approach.
Take Preventive Measures
Preventing cyber-attacks with a constructive strategy is the safest course of action for an organization to prevent becoming a target in the first place. Prevention necessitates three major areas of focus:
Knowledge is the key – Educating the end-users on cybersecurity by training and testing breeds caution. When they are aware of and understand the risks associated with their behavior, it reduces the risk to a company.
Use Technology – Cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated, using cutting-edge technology and techniques to gain access to a company's data. To protect its endpoints, companies should use cybersecurity best practices and cutting-edge technologies.
Recovery – Nothing deters a bad actor, like the ability to quickly restore clean copies of your backed-up files, programs, and applications.
