Important Alert - FBI Warning:
Ransomware Activity Targeting the Healthcare and Public Health Sector
As you may have seen, Federal agencies have issued an unprecedented warning against “an increased and imminent cybercrime threat to U.S. hospitals and healthcare providers.” While the recent warnings are focused on the healthcare industry, it is important to note that the ransomware involved is not specific to any particular industry. If you have important data stored on your computer or network, you are at risk of being targeted by cybercriminals. Recovery can be difficult, timely and very costly.
One of the Ransomware Best Practices recommended by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) in the Ransomware Guide;
“Use the 3-2-1 rule as a guideline for backup practices. The rule states that three copies of all critical data are retained on at least two different types of media and at least one of them is stored offline.”
The NETArchive solution is built upon the 3-2-1 strategy, incorporating this best practice into your infrastructure to ensure your company's data is protected from ransomware. NETArchive automates the movement of data within the internal storage tiers on RAID, Optical and Cloud, so you don’t have to manage it. Best of all, once data is written it is permanently protected from being changed, deleted or altered in any way, providing unmatched data resilience and recoverability!
There are many steps to ransomware prevention, but most important is protecting your critical data from being encrypted by ransomware where cybercriminals can then demand you pay a large sum of money to get your data back.
