|Avoid Ransomware with Nutanix, Arcserve, and Sophos|

With so much value put on data, protecting it is now more critical than ever.
Ransomware attacks seem endless and relentless. Daily headlines scream about the severity and frequency of attacks on organizations of all kinds – no industry is immune, and some including healthcare and government face more scrutiny when cyber attacks affect patient or constituent data or cause downtime for critical services.
Consider these examples:
The Texas Department of Transportation network was breached and experienced unauthorized access via a ransomware attack, causing the agency to shut down its system to isolate the incident.
The University of California San Francisco School of Medicine paid over $1 million to decrypt files after a ransomware attack. During the COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals and health organizations have been a prime target for cybercriminals.
Following a REvil attack on Travelex, a UK financial institution, cybercriminals demanded a $6 million ransom and claimed to have consumer’s personal and credit card data. Travelex took its IT systems and websites offline for more than three weeks, reverting airport currency exchange kiosks to pen and paper and leaving customers “in limbo.”
Ransomware impacts reach far beyond initial attack
While the immediate impacts of ransomware attacks such as downtime, data loss, or ransom payments seem crippling, the longer-term affects must also be considered as consumers are paying more attention to ransomware attacks.
A recent survey of consumers shows that 70% believe businesses aren’t doing enough to adequately secure their personal information and assume it has been compromised without them knowing it. 59% of consumers would likely avoid doing business with an organization that had experienced a cyberattack in the past year.
If you’re not focusing on cyber and data security, your customers will take notice. The study found that one in four consumers will abandon a product or service in favor of a competitor after a single ransomware-related service disruption, failed transaction, or instance of inaccessible information. Simply put, consumers won’t wait for your ransomware recovery.
