Ransomware remains a pervasive threat to businesses throughout many industries. As this type of cyberattack continues to increase and become more sophisticated, companies grapple to seek new and effective ways to protect their security systems. Putting preventive measures in place is good; however, organizations should go beyond just prevention.

With the growing inevitability of ransomware attacks and other cybersecurity threats, companies are called to put more focus and emphasis on crisis preparation. Robust data back-up and recovery strategy should be developed and synchronized with the company’s overall business continuity plan to ensure that operations will be able to resume in the quickest possible time in cases of attacks.
