Do you Know what Ransomware and Data Loss is?

Ransomware is a type of cyber attack designed by hackers where all company data is encrypted and hijacked becoming inaccessible overnight.

This data remains in the control of hackers until a ransom (usually with exorbitant amounts) is paid.

We had famous cases of large companies that had their data hijacked all over the world, but it can happen with all sizes of companies and segments and in some cases, they can lead a company to bankruptcy.

Prevention Ransomware and Data Loss

Data loss is an error condition in information systems where information is destroyed by failure (example: failing hard drives) or negligence in storage (such as mishandling, careless handling or storage under unsuitable conditions), transmission or processing. Data loss also happens by inadvertent or malicious actions on the part of company’s employees.

Information systems implement backup and disaster recovery equipments and processes to prevent data loss or restore lost data. Data loss can also occur if the physical medium containing the data is lost or stolen.

Data loss is distinguished from data unavailability, which can arise from a network outage. While the two have substantially similar consequences for users, data unavailability is temporary, while data loss can be permanent. Data loss is also distinct from data breach, an incident where data falls into the wrong hands, although the term data loss has been used in these incidents.

Is there a Solution for Ransomware and Data Loss attacks?

It is impossible to prevent these type of problems from happening, mainly due to the human factor, and even companies using cloud solutions like Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 are subject to Ransomware and/or Data Loss. Cybersecurity experts increasingly recommend that companies protect their data in the cloud with complete Backup systems with fast restores in case of Ransomware and Data Loss attacks, as only the protection provided by current Cloud systems has already proven not to respond adequately in these situations.
