Ransomware has had a banner year so far. Two major attacks — WannaCry and NotPetya — have caused, conservatively, hundreds of millions of dollars in damages, while cybercriminals continue to target users’ systems and data.
Proactive companies, however, do have options. The most consistent defense against ransomware continues to be good backups and a well-tested restore process. Companies that consistently back up their data and can quickly detect a ransomware attack should be able to restore their data and operations with a minimum of disruption.
