ProSight Ransomware Preparedness ReportRansomware has become the weapon of choice for cyber extortionists and bad-actor governments, representing a possibly existential risk to businesses that are victimized. The latest variations of crypto-ransomware go after all vulnerable resources, including backup, making even partial recovery a complex and expensive exercise. Novel variations of ransomware like Ryuk, Maze, Sodinokibi, Mailto (aka Netwalker), DopplePaymer, Snatch and Egregor have emerged, replacing Locky, Spora, and NotPetya in prominence, elaborateness, and destructive impact.

Most crypto-ransomware infections come from innocent-seeming emails with malicious hyperlinks or attachments, and a high percentage are so-called "zero-day" attacks that elude the defenses of traditional signature-matching antivirus tools. While user education and frontline identification are critical to defend against ransomware, leading practices demand that you take for granted some attacks will inevitably get through and that you deploy a solid backup mechanism that allows you to restore files and services quickly with little if any losses.

Progent's ProSight Ransomware Preparedness Assessment is an ultra-affordable service centered around a remote discussion with a Progent security consultant experienced in ransomware defense and recovery. In the course of this assessment Progent will work directly with your Beverly Hills IT managers to collect critical information concerning your cybersecurity profile and backup environment. Progent will use this data to create a Basic Security and Best Practices Report documenting how to follow best practices for configuring and managing your cybersecurity and backup solution to prevent or recover from a crypto-ransomware attack.

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

Security

  • Effective use of administration accounts
  • Assigning NTFS and SMB (Server Message Block) authorizations
  • Optimal firewall settings
  • Secure RDP connections
  • Guidance for AntiVirus (AV) tools identification and deployment
Backups
  • Split permission model for backup integrity
  • Backing up critical servers including AD
  • Offsite backups with cloud backup to Azure
The remote interview process for the ProSight Ransomware Vulnerability Report service lasts about one hour for a typical small company and requires more time for bigger or more complex IT environments. The written report features recommendations for improving your ability to block or recover from a ransomware attack and Progent can provide as-needed consulting services to assist you and your IT staff to design and deploy an efficient security/backup system customized for your specific needs.

About Ransomware
Ransomware is a form of malware that encrypts or steals a victim's files so they cannot be used or are made publicly available. Ransomware sometimes locks the target's computer. To avoid the damage, the target is required to pay a specified ransom, typically in the form of a crypto currency like Bitcoin, within a short time window. It is not guaranteed that delivering the ransom will recover the lost data or prevent its publication. Files can be encrypted or erased throughout a network depending on the victim's write permissions, and you cannot solve the strong encryption technologies used on the compromised files. A typical ransomware delivery package is booby-trapped email, whereby the user is tricked into interacting with by a social engineering technique known as spear phishing. This makes the email to appear to come from a familiar sender. Another popular attack vector is a poorly secured Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) port.

The ransomware variant CryptoLocker opened the modern era of ransomware in 2013, and the damage attributed to by different versions of ransomware is said to be billions of dollars per year, more than doubling every two years. Notorious examples include WannaCry, and NotPetya. Recent high-profile variants like Ryuk, Sodinokibi and Cerber are more sophisticated and have wreaked more havoc than older versions. Even if your backup/recovery processes permit your business to restore your ransomed files, you can still be hurt by so-called exfiltration, where stolen data are made public (known as "doxxing"). Because additional variants of ransomware are launched daily, there is no guarantee that conventional signature-based anti-virus tools will detect a new attack. If threat does show up in an email, it is important that your end users have been taught to be aware of phishing techniques. Your ultimate protection is a solid process for scheduling and keeping offsite backups and the use of reliable restoration tools.
