May 2017 – the largest ransomware attack ever
Ransomware burst into the public consciousness on May 12 when WannaCry tore across the globe, infecting a quarter million machines in more than 150 countries. The largest ransomware attack ever, it affected a diverse collection of entities, including FedEx, Spain-based Telefonica, Britain’s National Health Service, German railway company Deutsche Bahn, and LATAM Airlines.
While the specific threat from WannaCry eventually will subside, new strains of ransomware are already surfacing. The next threats are purported to not only lock your files but also mine them for virtual currencies, and personal information which can lead to identity theft.
“It’s only going to get worse and worse and worse,” Michael Gazeley, managing director of cybersecurity firm Network Box, told CNN. “And it’s absurd because companies have had years to prepare for this.”
The good news is that it’s not too late to set up a robust defense against ransomware and we explain how down below.
BCG’s BSecured backup solution fully prevents all in-the-wild samples of the malware related to these specific attacks. Coupled with our Managed Services suite you have a full circle of protection with multiple layers of security and redundancy. Sounds expensive doesn’t it? It isn’t as expensive as you may think. When you factor in the cost of having the IT guy come out to your office or home for hours to remove the virus, keeping you from working, then having to recreate what work product has been lost due to the virus. Not to mention having to interrupt the rest of your office while their systems are checked for propagation of the threat.
In today’s world we store almost everything important digitally. Our photos of precious family moments, important business documents, term papers, etc. For many, our computers are the most important business and leisure tool we have, doesn’t it deserve the proper protection?
