Steps for Keeping Backup Data Safe from Ransomware

Backing up data regularly is one of the most important things you can doto protect against a ransomware attack.

But that’s true only so long as your backup data itself is kept safe from ransomware. If attackers manage to compromise your backups, too, they can render the data unusable for recovery purposes. As a result, you will find yoursel in most cases with no option other than to pay the ransom if you want to restore operations.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ransomware

What is ransomware?
It’s a type of malicious attack created to block access to data, theoretically until the demanded sum of money is paid. Why theoretically? Because cybercriminals are not obliged to decrypt files once the ransom is paid, and you might end up losing all your data anyway.
How does it work?
Usually, it infects systems in two ways: the first one is via email, the second one is via suspicious links on websites or fake ads. These methods typically push the victim to click a link or download an attachment. Then the malicious software is installed and the infected part of the code encrypts all the data.
What are ransomware protection best practices?
There’s no way to guarantee immunity against ransomware, but you can avoid being affected in most cases. Basically, the best strategy is never to click suspicious links, double-check the contents of the emails you receive, never click pop-up windows with ads or suspicious ad banners on websites, have a solid backup and recovery tool in place, and keep systems up to date with timely patching.
How to protect backups from ransomware?
Use the 3-2-1-1-0 backup rule, use several cloud storages, implement immutable backups, limit access to backups, set up proper retention settings, monitor network activity and performance.
