Ransomware: No Surrender
14 July 2017
With the increase in the number of recent ransomware attacks, organisations are finding themselves in the embarrassing situation of having to inform their customers that they are unable to carry out their normal business functions due to being locked down by ransomware (a software that renders systems and data unusable until a payment has been made).
Banks and other financial services institutions are particularly vulnerable as their business models are based on trust which, if it falters, will have far-reaching consequences. A ransomware attack, if successful, results in loss of business, loss of earnings but most importantly may damage reputation beyond repair. The following are some practical measures to help contain a ransomware infection as well as to prevent any future cyber attacks.
