Protection from Ransomware & Other Malware

Ransomware Protection

LeeShanok is Committed to Ransomware Protection

Ransomware is the attack of choice for hackers. It is the quickest and easiest method to make a profit hacking. An estimated that 40% – 60% of all businesses were hit with a ransomware attack in the last year, and that number is expected to grow.

How Ransomware Works

A hacker infiltrates your network and executes a ransomware program. This infiltration can happen in many ways, but one of the most common is through an email phishing attack sent to unsuspecting employees.
The ransomware encrypts as much company data as possible, making it impossible to read without the decryption key. The hacker demands money (usually cryptocurrency) to decrypt the data, effectively holding the data hostage until the ransom is paid.
Today, ransomware is available as a service, meaning any bad actor could purchase the software and execute attacks without computer skills. Even after a company pays the ransom, some hackers will only decrypt part of the data, demanding another ransom payment to decrypt the rest.

Beyond Ransomware

Ransomware is the most well-known and prolific type of malware, but it is not the only cybersecurity threat. As just a few examples:
  • Other malware like viruses, spyware, and worms are still threats to businesses
  • Phishing attacks can deliver this malware, or be used to extract confidential information
  • Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks can take down your network by flooding it with traffic
Strategies that protect against ransomware may not fully protect against other forms of attacks. Understanding the entire threat landscape is critical to fully secure your company.

How LeeShanok Protects You from Ransomware & Other Threats

Proper cybersecurity requires a focus on two things: prevention and recovery. LeeShanok’s cybersecurity services are designed to do both.

Prevention

Stopping malware before it gets the chance to infect your network is the best defense. LeeShanok offers necessary technologies like Next Generation Firewalls , Dark Web Monitoring , and Multifactor Authentication

LeeShanok also offers cybersecurity training, which is just as important as the technology. Most breaches are the result of human error, so education is critical to prevent cyberattacks.

Recovery

Even with the best prevention strategies in place, no network can be 100% secure. It’s best to have an assume breach mindset. By expecting a cybersecurity breach, you can mitigate damage and recover more quickly.

The best recovery tool against ransomware is a strong backup solution. LeeShanok can help with your backup and disaster recovery strategy. We also work to segment networks, so breaches that affect one area can’t travel to infect others.

Adequate cyber insurance coverage is also important to recover financially from a breach. LeeShanok has identified cyber insurance leaders in Phoenix and Tucson that we can refer you to.
