Posted in Commentary with tags on November 13, 2021 by itnerd

The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has shared guidance for small businesses on how to secure their networks from ransomware attacks by blocking threat actors’ attempts to exploit vulnerabilities using social engineering or exploits targeting technology. You can find that guidance here in the form of this Ransomware Guide and this Fact Sheet on Rising Ransomware Threat to Operational Technology Assets. On top of that, the FTC also provides a detailed guide with all the steps businesses have to take to respond to a ransomware attack effectively.

These are very much worth reading as ransomware attacks aren’t going away. Thus you need to be prepared for an attack.
