Protecting your organisation from cybercrime is a priority for everyone in your business, not the sole responsibility of your IT department or CISO, as it also falls on the shoulders of all employees to be vigilant.
The Independent reports that while high profile ransomware attacks, such as the Colonial Pipeline attack in the US that caused fuel shortages, attacks still persist, and it is vital that your organisation strengthens its defences against ransomware attacks. We have a look at some tips to help protect your business.
Delivering security as a distributed service
To protect the anywhere workforce, regardless of the devices and networks workers are using, deliver endpoint and network controls as a distributed service that follows the assets being protected throughout the environment.
Better visibility over endpoints and workloads can provide contextual insight and situational intelligence to help defenders prioritise and remediate risk with confidence.
Conducting regular threat hunting
Multistage ransomware campaigns aim to access networks undetected, but regular threat hunting can help detect silent incursions and the presence of hackers by spotting anomalous behaviour.
Keeping monitoring ‘quiet’ to avoid counter-incident response
It would be wise to assume that hackers will have multiple points of entry, so watch and wait before taking any action, such as blocking malware or terminating systems, until you fully understand all possible points of re-entry.
Engage with an incident response partner
No matter how stringent your defects, it is still a case of when not if your organisation will be attacked, so it is vital that you are prepared. By teaming up with an incident response partner, you can develop a plan to put into action when required.
