Ransomware comes in different forms, but essentially, it’s a piece of a Trojan that gets access to your device and encrypts all your data and asks for payment to decrypt them. No one wants to give hundreds of dollars to hackers. For ransomware, backup is meant to be your backup plan.
Backups are the best way to take control of your defense against ransomware, but they need protecting as well. It can be nearly impossible to stop ransomware attacks unless you have a reliable and effective data backup strategy.
Make Your Cloud Backups Strategy
There are some quick ways to make your backup strategy that will make it more effective against ransomware.
- No security tool is 100% functional, but using a multi-layered approach that includes firewalls, antivirus, and behavioral-based malware detection can help ensure that even if one layer doesn’t protect from a threat another layer will do so.
- Whether it’s through phishing, or social engineering the biggest weak point attackers usually target is user behavior. It is better to train the users regularly for best practices and how they can avoid having their computers compromised by malware.
- Always keep all security tools up to date and patching to keep up with new cyber-attacks. Make sure all of the antivirus are regularly updated.
