Ransomware Protection

FullScope IT reticle horizontal rule

Your network is only as secure as the weakest part. If you’re not careful, your business could be at risk making ransomware protection more important now than ever. This is especially true for small to medium-sized businesses. We get it. You’re focused on building the business, keeping employees engaged, and customers happy, but there’s more to a business than that.

Whether your business is in architecture, engineering, finance, government contracting, healthcare, hospitality and travel, HVAC, insurance, manufacturing, oil and gas, real estate, accounting, construction, or legal services, it is subject to hacking. If the firm is held to compliance standards like HIPAA, SEC, or FINRA, the risk isn’t simply to your business, it’s a risk of having to pay fines for violations, in addition to reputation management.

The good news is that the team at FullScope IT is ready to protect your business with our state-of-the-art Network Security.

Difficulties of Ransomware

What is ransomware? It is malicious software that blocks access to files on computers. The people behind the attack hold the data until a ransom is paid. Until such time, the data stays encrypted.

Sounds like a scenario from a television show. Attacks have been featured in several medical dramas with the hospitals needing to pay millions of dollars to release data and get medical equipment working again.

Reality is sometimes stranger than fiction.

In 2021, the ten biggest cyberattacks occurred across industries. These included oil and gas, hospitals, and even the National Basketball Association. Hackers also became more sophisticated by attacking supply chains in an effort to slow down the speed of goods to customers.

We say this all not to scare you, but to make you aware of the risk and to illustrate the importance of ransomware protection.

Cybersecurity to Protect from Ransomware

Cybersecurity is how we protect from ransomware. As a network security service provider, we design and implement tools and systems that predict, monitor, and prevent unauthorized access to client, customer, employee, and patient files. In addition, we also seek to identify and prevent access, misuse, and theft of data and the networks and servers on which it resides.

Ransomware protection and prevention begins with employee education about phishing, spam, and scams and includes:

  • Offline backups in addition to virtual backups.
  • Spam filters
  • Limiting access to high level information
  • Updating software
  • Securing remote desktops
  • Business continuity planning
  • Sandbox testing of suspicious files
  • Installation of anti-virus software
  • Updating the email server
  • Ban use of outside equipment like personal laptops
  • As with all our services, we begin by assessing what is in place currently, assess the potential breaches, and implement changes to secure data at all levels of the organization.

    Benefits of Ransomware Protection

    Organizations lose thousands, if not millions, of dollars paying ransoms to get their own data back before it is released publicly to the internet. Don’t let that be the reason your organization loses money. Ransomware protection means it is considerably less likely data can be stolen, halting business operations.

    Partnering with Fullscope IT is the step your business needs. Our team of experts develop a plan for whatever the size of your organization, assess key areas for improved security, and monitor networks and servers all day, every day.
