Ransomware attacks, such as the recent WannaCry or Petya, aren't particular about the type of industry, company or organization they affect. It can affect everyone. Beyond this, malware is usually viewed as a security issue, though the fast propagation and major business-wide impacts show that ransomware, as a type of malware, is a greater concern that penetrates through the whole IT department.
How can you better prepare for, and respond to, such threats?
Understanding how to see end-to-end may sound daunting but believe it or not, the best protection against ransomware is to maintain good security hygiene principles. As well as easily assessing posture across the environment, before quickly investigating, verifying, and responding from a single location.
