How Do I Reduce the Risk of Ransomware Attacks?

The first step to reduce the risk of a ransomware infection is to install endpoint protection software. Endpoint protection software differs from antivirus software since it protects every endpoint that a company has instead of just a single device. This includes protecting your Cloud, servers, network, desktops and laptops, smartphones, tablets, and other IoT devices from cyber attacks. This is your company’s first line of defense against ransomware.

Next, organizations need to ensure that all of their data is backed up either in the Cloud, in a data center, or on your premises. This will help expedite the data recovery process in the event of a ransomware attack.

Storcom’s Ransomware Prevention and Recovery Roadmap™ enables companies to understand their options with endpoint protection software and backup solutions and offerings. Next, companies need to train their employees on cybersecurity threats. Companies who have implemented training on ransomware and malware are statistically less likely to be infected.
