2021 was the year of ransomware. You couldn’t watch or read the news without hearing about another business falling victim. Cybersecurity Ventures estimates that a ransomware attack took place every 11 seconds in 2021, with global damages reaching an estimated $20 billion – that is 57x more than it was in 2015. Unfortunately, the reality is that ransomware is here to stay, and every organization, regardless of industry or size, is a potential target.
To make matters worse, attackers are now targeting backups to limit the ability to recover. With backups as the new target, many organizations are asking themselves, “Can we rapidly recover from a ransomware attack?” This question can be challenging to answer, but the good news is that there are a few key questions that can help you determine if your backups can serve as not only your last line of defense but your best line of defense.
Let’s explore these must-ask questions and why they are important to consider. You can also complete the Rubrik Ransomware Recovery Assessment for a personalized assessment of your cyber preparedness:
