ProSight Ransomware Preparedness AssessmentRansomware has become the weapon of choice for cybercriminals and bad-actor governments, posing a possibly lethal threat to businesses that are breached. The latest variations of crypto-ransomware target all vulnerable resources, including backup, making even partial restoration a long and costly process. New variations of crypto-ransomware such as Ryuk, Maze, Sodinokibi, Mailto (aka Netwalker), Phobos, Conti and Egregor have made the headlines, displacing WannaCry, TeslaCrypt, and CryptoWall in prominence, sophistication, and destructiveness.

Most crypto-ransomware infections are the result of innocuous-seeming emails that have dangerous hyperlinks or attachments, and many are "zero-day" strains that elude detection by legacy signature-matching antivirus (AV) tools. Although user education and frontline detection are critical to defend your network against ransomware, best practices demand that you expect that some attacks will eventually succeed and that you deploy a strong backup solution that permits you to recover rapidly with minimal losses.

Progent's ProSight Ransomware Preparedness Report is an ultra-affordable service centered around an online interview with a Progent cybersecurity expert experienced in ransomware protection and recovery. In the course of this interview Progent will work directly with your Beverly Hills IT management staff to gather pertinent data concerning your security posture and backup processes. Progent will use this information to generate a Basic Security and Best Practices Report documenting how to follow leading practices for implementing and administering your cybersecurity and backup systems to prevent or clean up after a crypto-ransomware assault.

Progent's Basic Security and Best Practices Report highlights vital issues related to crypto-ransomware prevention and restoration recovery. The report addresses:


  • Effective use of admin accounts
  • Assigning NTFS (New Technology File System) and SMB authorizations
  • Optimal firewall settings
  • Safe Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) connections
  • Recommend AntiVirus filtering selection and configuration
  • Split permission architecture for backup protection
  • Protecting key servers such as Active Directory
  • Geographically dispersed backups with cloud backup to Azure
The remote interview included with the ProSight Ransomware Preparedness Checkup service lasts about an hour for a typical small business network and longer for larger or more complex environments. The report document includes recommendations for enhancing your ability to block or recover from a ransomware assault and Progent offers on-demand consulting services to help your business to design and deploy an efficient security/data backup system tailored to your business requirements.

About Ransomware
Ransomware is a variety of malware that encrypts or steals a victim's files so they cannot be used or are publicized. Crypto-ransomware often locks the victim's computer. To prevent the carnage, the target is asked to pay a specified amount of money (the ransom), typically in the form of a crypto currency such as Bitcoin, within a short time window. There is no guarantee that paying the ransom will recover the lost data or prevent its exposure to the public. Files can be encrypted or deleted across a network based on the target's write permissions, and you cannot solve the military-grade encryption technologies used on the hostage files. A typical ransomware delivery package is booby-trapped email, whereby the user is lured into responding to by a social engineering exploit known as spear phishing. This causes the email to look as though it came from a trusted source. Another popular attack vector is a poorly protected Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) port.

CryptoLocker opened the modern era of ransomware in 2013, and the damage caused by different versions of ransomware is estimated at billions of dollars per year, more than doubling every two years. Notorious attacks include WannaCry, and Petya. Recent headline variants like Ryuk, Sodinokibi and Cerber are more complex and have caused more damage than earlier versions. Even if your backup procedures enable your business to recover your ransomed data, you can still be hurt by so-called exfiltration, where ransomed data are exposed to the public. Because new versions of ransomware crop up daily, there is no certainty that traditional signature-matching anti-virus filters will detect the latest attack. If an attack does show up in an email, it is critical that your end users have been taught to be aware of social engineering tricks. Your ultimate defense is a solid scheme for scheduling and retaining offsite backups and the use of reliable recovery platforms.
