Stemming The Bleeding From Ransomware

Companies are laser-focused on reducing their mean time to recovery as well as the loss of sensitive customer data during a ransomware attack, according to IBM Security General Manager Mary O’Brien. As the SolarWinds attack demonstrated, malware can come in on a trojan and be silent for an extended period of time, meaning that businesses should maintain several copies of their backups, O’Brien said.

Specifically, O’Brien said companies need to make sure they’re not backing up to a point in time when their system was also infected. Customers have increasingly embraced the idea of having multiple backups from multiple points in time to accelerate the recovery and ensure customer data isn’t lost, according to O’Brien.

Aside from backups, O’Brien said network segmentation helps contain potential damage by minimizing the hacker’s access to anything that’s deeply sensitive or valuable. Customers concerns about ransomware span the gamut from extortion and destroying core business infrastructure to losing customer data and running afoul of compliance mandates, according to O’Brien.
