The ransomware business model is a lucrative industry for criminals.
There are a few dos and don’ts when it comes to ransomware.
What should you do:
Do not open attachments that are not from a reliable source
If you get a pop-up to update an application such as Adobe reader do not click on it
Do not provide personal information when answering an email, unsolicited phone call, text message or instant message. Phishers will try to trick employees into installing malware, or gain intelligence for attacks by claiming to be from IT. Be sure to contact your IT department if you or your coworkers receive suspicious calls.
Use content filtering on your mail servers. Inbound e-mails should be scanned for known threats and should block any attachment types that could pose a threat.
Be sure all systems and software are up-to-date with relevant patches. Regular patching of vulnerable software is necessary to help prevent infection.
If traveling, make sure you use a trustworthy Virtual Private Network (VPN) when accessing public Wi-Fi.
DO NOT PAY the ransom if you get the pop-up asking you to do so
Use antivirus software and a firewall. Be sure to keep the software up to date.
Find a safe and reliable way to update your security and recover your files.
Back-Up your workstations/files nightly and don’t leave the back up files attached to your workstatioin or server
Restore any impacted files from a known good backup. Restoration of your files from a backup is the fastest way to regain access to your data.
