Responding To A Ransomware Infection

Did you know it takes most businesses up to 6 months to find out that they’ve experienced a data breach?
That’s why cybersecurity is about more than prevention – it’s about intelligence and response as well. You need to know when a ransomware attack has been attempted, just as much as you need to know when a ransomware attack has been successful.
Do you know how to respond to a ransomware attack? Check out our latest video to find out:

How Should You Respond To A Ransomware Attack?

If a business suspects their networks are at immediate risk, the first step is to disconnect the computer from the company’s network to inhibit further exploitation attempts on other systems.
Simply remove the network cable from its connection point, usually a tower or laptop. This step should be then followed by disabling the WiFi settings. It is critical that this is performed manually to make sure it’s been properly disconnected.
Power Down
Once the computer has been removed from the network, it is then necessary to power down the machine to prevent any potential damage.
