The three big industries ransomware targets

What would you do in case of a ransomware attack? This is a question I have heard a lot lately and I wish there was a simpler answer for it. Ransomware attacks have increased in numbers and complexity and spread to organizations of any industry across the globe. As a matter of fact, we need to accept that cyberattacks are more present than ever, and they can affect both our professional and personal lives, unless we prepare — this is the key for staying out of trouble!

Demystifying Recovery Objectives

Downtime is not an option for modern organizations that must fulfill their customers’ needs and expectations. Different types of incidents can occur and impact your business revenue or even existence. Whether it’s a ransomware attack, a power outage, flood or simply human mistakes, these events are unpredictable, and the best thing you can do is to BE PREPARED.

Preparedness means that you should have a solid business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) plan. One that has been tested and that can be put in motion smoothly.

Our center of command is sitting in our pockets, and we are just a few taps away from booking a flight, checking our bank account or reading the news about our favorite football team. Our fast pace of life demands uninterrupted access to each application on any type of device from everywhere. Therefore, organizations need not only speed and versatility, they also need what we call Availability.

Why snapshots alone are not backups

Having a clear picture of what VM snapshots and backups can do for you is critical when your data is at stake. To dispel any doubts, snapshots are NOT backups. They are two different processes designed to address different needs. Today, I’m going to explain the discrepancy between VM snapshots and backups and provide you with a few scenarios where each of them best fits.

While it is true that many Veeam products will use a snapshot as part of a backup — a snapshot by itself is not a backup. This logic applies to VMware VM snapshots, Hyper-V checkpoints and storage snapshots as well.
