Guest Post on Backup and Recovery From Ransomware

Companies and governmental institutions around the globe face an increase in cyber attacks. The potential damage hackers can cause correlate with the possible amount of money to be extorted of victims. The cyber security threats organizations are exposed to are quite significant and should be considered in every organization’s backup & disaster recovery strategy.

In my current role at Detecon I had the chance to publish an article with Informatik Aktuell, a german online IT news outlet, to elaborate current and future Cyber Security threats and their impact on corporate backup & disaster recovery strategies.

In that article I give some latest examples on different types of ransomware attacks and their damage caused (even collateral ones). I also address current reports issued by european information security authorities as ENISA (EU) or BSI & BKA (Germany). Most importantly, I lay out some proven concepts in the cyber security space which can be applied to an organizations security architecture in order to be better prepared for cyber attacks as ransomware.

You can find the (original) German version of the article on Informatik Aktuell’s website: Cyber-Angriffe erfordern die richtige Backup- und Desaster-Recovery-Strategie (german)

The english version can be found on this page: Cyber attacks require the right backup and recovery strategy.

Feel free to share your thoughts on Twitter :).
