The rise of ransomware: steps to increase your cybersecurity

BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT Stand: M33

If an attacker wants to target a big company, they may face many issues and difficulties extending the time required to launch the attack.

Attackers are clever. Therefore, they may try to hit the weakest link in the chain – a supplier of a big company, where cybersecurity may not be at a suitable level to tackle modern attacks. A good example of such a combination is the recent ransomware attack on the NHS where attackers targeted one of the suppliers.

Fortunately, we are not helpless, and we can undertake specific actions to reduce the likelihood and impact of ransomware attacks – and take steps to take to improve your cybersecurity.

Unfortunately, it is expected that the volume of ransomware attacks will only increase. Therefore, organisations must ensure they are ready to deal with attacks efficiently.

It is worth remembering that there is no one-size-fits-all solution in cybersecurity and the processes, procedures and tools should be tailored to an organisation’s business model, risk profile and other specific requirements.
