$400,000 Ransom Paid by County in Georgia.

All I can say is make sure you have a modern back-up and disaster recovery system in place that has the following components:

1. Automated – do not rely on a person to perform back-ups

2. Redundant including a secure, off-site location

3. Recovery time (meaning back in operation) should be minutes not days, weeks or more

4. Monitored and tested – be certain your back-ups are complete and successful

If you’re confused about how to get all this in a system, I can help. RSPN offers a program that will provide your business with all of this for a manageable monthly payment. Contact us today to learn more about how we manage your IT Infrastructure with several safeguards against this type of attack on your business.  You can also read about our backup and recovery services here.  In the past these enterprise class tools required a large capital investment but have been redesigned with the small to mid-size business in mind.  Also, check out our Virtual CIO service if you are looking for ways to re-architect your existing IT soution.
