Preparing Your Organization For Ransomware Attacks
What do you do if your computer suddenly displays a countdown clock and a message telling you that your files have been encrypted and will be permanently lost to you unless you pay a ransom by a specified date and time? Whether you are responsible for protecting computers and data for a small business, hospital, local government, or other organization, it’s vital that you be prepared for ransomware attacks. This guidance from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) includes basic practices for protecting against and recovering from ransomware attacks. Be sure to consult an expert if one is available to you.
