Avoid paying a King’s ransom for your data

With an alarming rise in the frequency of ransomware attacks expected in 2023, businesses of all sizes need to urgently familiarise themselves with the necessary steps to fortify their security posture. Such is the complexity of these attacks that leaders across the UK could quickly find themselves in the firing line if their defences are weak and left vulnerable.

In our whitepaper we explain the urgent need to recognise the characteristics of an attack through a better understanding of the evolving threat vectors, as cyber criminals get bolder in their approaches, and options such as Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) become more commonly utilised methods. Only by taking urgent action now can business downtime, financial loss and reputational damage be avoided through implementation of improved security policy and a dynamic incident response plan.

“Put simply, 2023 will see the coming together of the means, motive and opportunity when it comes to executing ransomware attacks. The growing social unease and tense geo-political relations that may cause grievances, the lucrative gains to be made, and now easy access to ransomware technology are a toxic combination that should be a cause for concern for cyber security and IT professionals.”

Why a robust Zero Trust security framework is critical

Ransomware is expected to move into the mainstream in 2023 with cyber criminals getting bolder, as Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) puts the means to implement an attack into the hands of many more prospective perpetrators. With this in mind, it has never been more imperative to adopt a never trust and always verify stance. Firmly locking down access to data requires implementation of a Zero Trust strategy, with consistent encryption and a stringent backup policy.

This whitepaper will enable you to gain a better understanding of the steps that should be taken to ensure stringent security measures are taken to protect your businesses from an ever-evolving threat.
