The news has been filled with information about the new Wanna Cry ransomware. The good news for our managed clients is that we do have protections in place from this attack. This is why it’s so important and why I stress the importance of multi-layered defense. Even with what we have in place, we’re going to be putting additional protections in place. No system is 100% secure, our goal is to make sure we’re taking the right steps to get closer.
At the end of the day, the best defense is to make sure you have recoverable backups in place. If all else fails, you want to be able to restore your systems from your backups instead of paying a ransom.
If you’re not 100% sure you have a recoverable backup in place, contact us and we’ll be glad to provide a no-charge assessment of your current backup strategy.
