Backing up and protecting business data is a big deal in today’s corporate world. This is also a rising challenge due to employees mobility and data migration from data centers to endpoint devices. Yet many traditional backup solutions focus on server protection within a firewall, not taking into consideration rapid shift of data to the end-devices.
How to protect ourselves
It can be seen that cybercriminals are motivated by money and all computer users, without any exceptions, are vulnerable. If you get attacked by a ransomware virus, first switch your computer off. Some malicious software first shows the message concerning infection and then it encrypts our files. In such case we can prevent the encryption of at least some data. Files should then be restored by connecting the disc to a different computer, which hasn’t been connected to the network in order to eliminate for the virus the possibility to connect with the CnC server. Without this it is unable to encrypt files.
