HYCU CEO: With New Ransomware Recovery Readiness Score, The Focus Is On When The ‘Bad Guys Are Already In The House’

‘We’ve got to stop telling people that they can be foolproof against a ransomware attack. Instead, we need to let people know you’re going to get hit and [attackers are] going to get in the door. But when they get in, we want to make sure that you never have to pay the bad guys any kind of ransom,’ says HYCU CEO Simon Taylor.

HYCU recently introduced the R-Score, or ransomware recovery readiness score. Tell us about it.

It’s effectively a credit score that assesses your ransomware recovery capabilities. [We wanted to offer] a public service to really help people to do better in terms of being able to prepare for a ransomware attack. And when we looked at all the tools out there, we realized that everything is designed around stopping the bad guys from getting in the door. But really nobody’s come up with a very simple way of evaluating what’s going to happen to your business when they get in. There are lots of tools and metrics and measurement kind of things that look at can I stop you from getting in? But once you get into my data, we want it to say, how ready are you to recover the data so you don’t need to pay the bad guys? And so we came up with this idea of generating almost a credit score for your business. You simply go online and answer a series of questions. It doesn’t just give you a score. It gives you a whole remediation plan so that you can improve your score and get better.
