We provide the technology and hardware to monitor activities in multiple locations, including critical entry and exit points, which provide an added security layer for your premises. Following the installation, we test each camera/CCTV through the app and train you on its uses to log in and monitor your desired location 24/7.
Incident Response Plan
Have an Incident Response Plan that includes what to do during a ransomware event.
Antivirus, Anti-Spam and Anti-Phishing solutions
Use Antivirus, Anti-Spam and Anti-Phishing solutions. Enable regular system and network scans with antivirus programs enabled to automatically update signatures. Implement an anti-spam solution to stop phishing emails from reaching the network. Consider adding a warning banner to all emails from external sources that reminds users of the dangers of clicking on links and opening attachments.
Least privilege and network segmentation
Don’t automatically open email attachments. Email is one of the main methods for delivering ransomware. Avoid opening emails attachments from unfamiliar or untrusted sources. Phishing spam in particular can fool you into clicking on a legitimate-looking link in an email that actually contains malicious code. The malware then prevents you from accessing your data, holds that data hostage, and demands ransom.
Backups. Use a backup system that allows multiple iterations of the backups to be saved, in case a copy of the backups includes encrypted or infected files. Routinely test backups for data integrity and to ensure it is operational.
Restrict Internet access
Restrict Internet access. Use a proxy server for Internet access and consider ad-blocking software. Restrict access to common ransomware entry points, such as personal email accounts and social networking websites.
Keep all systems patched, including all hardware, including mobile devices, operating systems, software, and applications, including cloud and up-to-date. Use a centralized patch management system if possible.
Vet and monitor third parties
Vet and monitor third parties that have remote access to the organization’s network and/or your connections to third parties, to ensure they are diligent with cybersecurity best practices.
Automatically open email attachments
Apply the principles of least privilege and network segmentation. Categorize and separate data based on organizational value and where possible, implement virtual environments and the physical and logical separation.
Software restriction policies
Software restriction policies. Implement application white-listing and software restriction policies to prevent the execution of programs in common ransomware locations, such as temporary folders.
