What you can Do Today to be better protected
The purpose of this section is to provide some steps that can be done now to help protect your business.
Test Your Backups & Make Sure They're Immutable or Air Gapped
Having backups is a good start but can also be a false sense of security. Needing them to work when you need them is critical to surviving a ransomware attack. Regularly test your backups and have a few copies of them offline or in an immutable storage environment like Wasabi. Hackers go after backups too, which helps them make sure they have more leverage for getting ransomware funds.
Keep All Software Up To Date
Software can have vulnerabilities in them which allow hackers to get into your network. Keeping your software up to date helps ensure they have the latest security patches for that software. Windows updates is just one part of keeping software up to date.
Enable Multifactor Authentication (MFA) for Email and Remote Access
Passwords are a weak spot for small businesses. Wherever possible have MFA, which is a code or prompt to your phone to access resources such as your email or VPN remote access.
Don't Let the Hackers Win
