You can’t choose when you’ll be hit by ransomware, but you can choose how you prepare

What sort of disaster would you rather prepare for? Hurricanes are destructive, but you know when one’s coming, giving you time to take defensive action. Earthquakes vary in their destructive power, but you never know when they’re going to hit, meaning your ability to recover after the impact is critical.

There’s a corollary with ransomware here explains David Paquette, product marketing manager at HPE-owned continuous data protection company Zerto. Ransomware attackers are constantly hitting your organization looking for vulnerabilities and it is only a matter of time before they slip past your security defenses.

It’s your ability to recover that makes the difference to your survival. That’s why organizations need to start thinking of ransomware in disaster recovery terms, not just simple backup and recovery terms, he argues.

Five years ago, he explains, the threat was “baby ransomware” focused on encrypting file data. Beyond perimeter defenses and good security hygiene protecting against ransomware was “a backup use case”, with file level restore usually sufficient.

Now ransomware and its creators have become more advanced, says Paquette: “It is propagating into backups and encrypting them or deleting them. It’s encrypting entire applications, entire sites. And the consequences are far beyond a simple loss of data.”
