What is ransomware?

Ransomware is malicious software that blocks computer access until a sum of money is paid. As well as interrupting business and extorting money, ransomware providers are now stealing data and threatening to expose it if their targets don’t pay ransoms on time. 

This is an ever-present threat facing enterprises of all sizes. Plus, it’s big business. The tools and techniques of the criminals exploiting individuals and companies are now more advanced than ever.

How can I protect my business against ransomware?

During a ransomware defence audit, we’ll work with you to understand whether you have the procedures and policies needed to prevent ransomware from taking hold, or to let you recover if the worst happens. 

We will also review the key technical controls that would prevent a ransomware infection in the first place, and identify any areas of weakness that need to be addressed. Finally, we can work with you to simulate a ransomware infection and practise your response so that you can react appropriately if the worst happens.
