What Can You Do? 

One of the easiest ways to protect against ransomware is to secure user endpoints.

Ransomware accounted for around 20% of all cyber crimes in 2022. 

Cisco Secure Endpoint offers cloud-delivered endpoint protection plus advanced endpoint detection and response across multi-domain control points.

How You Are Vulnerable

Minimize ransomware vulnerability by educating employees about cybersecurity risks and best practices, and implementing robust security protocols. There are several factors that can expose your company to ransomware:

Outdated Software

Using outdated software and neglecting to patch known security risks can leave a workplace exposed to ransomware attacks such as network infiltration, file encryption, and blackmail for safe data return.

Untrained Employees

Employees not trained in cybersecurity best practices are more likely to click on malicious links, download infected files, or have weak passwords, which attackers can exploit to gain access to sensitive data.

No Data Backups

Without a reliable backup system as a last resort to recover data, a workplace may have to pay the ransom to retrieve encrypted data in a ransomware attack, risking financial loss and damage to reputation and customer trust.

Weak and Reused Passwords

Weak passwords make it easier for attackers to gain unauthorized access and launch ransomware attacks, so it’s important to use strong passwords and multi-factor authentication for added security.

Why It’s Relevant to You

Not addressing ransomware vulnerabilities in a workplace can have severe consequences, both financially and operationally.

To address these vulnerabilities, organizations must take proactive measures to mitigate the risk of a ransomware attack and protect themselves from potential repercussions.
