Ransomware, a type of malware that encrypts files and prevents users from accessing their data or system unless a ransom is paid, poses a very real and potentially disruptive threat. If infected files are opened on computers connected to a network, the attack can quickly spread and wreak havoc – as demonstrated by the global WannaCry attack in 2017.
Although not a new technique used by cybercriminals, ransomware is continually evolving and it’s imperative that you keep up-to-date with the latest threats.
Dionach’s ransomware readiness review is designed to assess your organisation’s specific vulnerability to ransomware attacks. The review will determine the likelihood of an incident, the potential impact on your wider organisation, and how quickly you could recover.
We assess the following areas, creating a readiness score to gauge risk that contributes to our overall view of your resilience:
• Information security policies and employee awareness
• PC and laptop technical security controls
• Central management of technical security controls
• Employee susceptibility to phishing emails
• Security updates
• Secure configuration
