To pay or not to pay, that is the question: How to tackle Ransomware
Recently news hit the media that UK companies are stockpiling bitcoins in preparation for a Ransomware attack. This means two things, one that they expect an attack and two, that they see no choice but to pay it. It seems investing in Bitcoins is the only solution some businesses have, but this sends out totally the wrong message that “we’re vulnerable and prepared to pay”.
This might not seem surprising since malware strains are constantly evolving and security deigned to keep out the virus struggle to keep up with the increasing sophistication of the attacks. However, there is a way to combine data security with data protection, which can keep data safe and eliminate the need to pay the ransom. In his talk To pay or not to pay, that is the question: How to tackle Ransomware, Gary Watson, VP of Technical Engagement for Nexsan, will show you how you can keep your data and your reputation safe without paying any ransoms.
