Ransomware is malware that, upon infection, prevents access to certain elements of your systems until a ransom is paid to the attackers. There are many different strains of ransomware, which variously encrypt data and system files, through a range of possible attack vectors.
Once infected, you have two options: pay the ransom or restore clean data from before the breach. This guide details the step-by-step process for managing the incident and restoring data.
We also outline the technical foundation that must be laid ahead of time - specifically how to configure backup or replication schedules in order to minimise downtime and data loss.
