Maintain your anti-virus/malware platform

Ensuring that anti-virus software is installed on all computers is a must if you want to be protected from opportunistic attacks. But ensuring that the estate is fully managed is essential to maintain the security posture. Malware is becoming increasingly sophisticated and, in many cases, will attempt to disable protection mechanisms on the target. Being aware of, and reacting to, endpoints that have their protection disabled is key.

Back up, then back up again

If you enforce regular back-ups and your files are held to ransom, you won’t have to pay an attacker if they are stored somewhere else! However, we would recommend that you employ offsite back-up in addition to the back-up that you hold onsite. With the ever-evolving sophistication of viruses, there is the potential of a crypto virus encrypting your onsite back up files… A disaster if you don’t have them backed up offsite! A full back up of your system and data using an external location would ensure the recovery of these files and therefore reduce the impact of the attack.

Test your backup solution

Are the backups being tested regularly?
