It's unfortunate, but it's not uncommon for businesses to fall victim to ransomware attacks, especially if they don't have strong cybersecurity measures in place. In this case, a client was hit by a ransomware attack with no detection or strong backup plan, leaving them with no other option but to pay the ransom.
"Another key element of a proactive approach to network security is educating employees about cybersecurity best practices. This includes training on password management, phishing scams, and how to identify and report suspicious activity. Employees should also be encouraged to report any incidents or potential security breaches, no matter how minor they may seem."
- Jamie Kennis, Director of IT, Technic Business Solutions
The client is a manufacturing business based in San Diego that had been operating for several years without experiencing any significant cybersecurity threats. The company had no prior experience dealing with ransomware attacks and had not implemented any proactive measures to protect their data.
After realizing that their system had been compromised, the client was left with a difficult decision to make. Paying the ransom was the only way to retrieve their data, and the longer they waited, the higher the ransom demand would become. Despite the ethical and financial implications of paying the ransom, the client felt they had no other choice but to pay in order to regain access to their system.
Consequently, the company recognized the need to take a proactive approach to network security is to invest in robust cybersecurity tools and technologies. This includes firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, antivirus software, endpoint security solutions, a robust backup plan, email protection, and employee security awareness training.
After hearing about Technic Business Solutions' comprehensive approach from client references the client engaged us for a meeting to talk about our services.
"Through discussions with Technic, we realized that our network, files, and entire business are vulnerable," said the president.
"We require a full IT security approach to secure our network including a robust backup and disaster recovery plan"
- Clients President
