Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery & CyberSecurity

Prior, Proper, Planning

Getting Ahead of Business Disruptions with Strategic Thinking

Business continuity is a thoughtful process that describes a complete solution for backup and disaster recovery. A true business continuity solution will protect data on-premise and in the cloud, and also details a data restoration strategy.

Unfortunately, many firms take shortcuts in these areas due to the historically high costs of implementing comprehensive solutions.

The Many Flavors of Ransomware Today

More and more, ransomware has emerged as a major threat to individuals and businesses alike. Ransomware, a type of malware that encrypts data on infected systems, has become a lucrative option for cyber extortionists.

When the malware is run, it locks victim’s files and allows criminals to demand payment to release them.

Organizations of all types and sizes have been impacted by ransomware, but small businesses can be particularly vulnerable to attacks.

Ransomware is on the rise

In a recent study conducted by security software vendor McAfee Labs, researchers identified more than 4 million samples of ransomware in Q2 of 2015, including 1.2 million new samples.

That compares with fewer than 1.5 million total samples in Q3 of 2013 (400,000 new). Ransomware is distributed in a variety of ways and is difficult to protect against because, just like the flu virus, it is constantly evolving.

In this eBook, our partners at datto cover:

  • Top 7 common types of ransomware that threaten businesses today
  • How the malware is spread
  • Best practices for protecting your business
  • And more
