Ransomware advisory and recovery

(Re)building ransomware resilience

Ransomware has quickly expanded beyond the traditional targets of high-investment, better-protected industries, such as financial services. Attackers no longer lay silent for months inside technology systems. Now, attacks have moved beyond theft to focus on business disruption.

Recent incidents targeted unprotected organisations and demanded significant payments to release locked systems and enable access to data. These attacks follow a new model to rapidly penetrate, exfiltrate, encrypt – then demand ransom.

Ransomware attacks require your focus in three areas: Anticipating the attack. Responding when it happens. Recovering your business and updating your cybersecurity posture and business controls based on what you learned.

You need a consulting partner who will help you anticipate and map the threat landscape, react to a motivated and cunning adversary, and adapt to meet the next step of the attacker.

Partnering with Protiviti will enable you to:

  • Understand the threat landscape, potential threat vectors, and weak control areas in your organisation
  • Streamline crisis management across your enterprise
  • Gain confidence in decisions to quickly resume operations with minimal long-term impacts
  • Build an active defense to prevent recurrence and anticipate new and evolving threats
