Have you ever thought of a ransomware attack against your data? Definitely, you would not think of such a situation. But we are familiar with such situations and this is why we bring you this article. Read the entire article and know how to save your data from ransomware attack

What is a Ransomware attack?

First of all, let us understand what ransomware attack is. A ransomware attack is a popular kind of cyber attack carried out with malware that encrypts your systems and data. Attackers may demand ransom money or anything to decrypt your data, to give your data back or you can access it again. 

To develop a robust data protection strategy, it’s often easiest to start protecting with your own data and look upon safety at your end first. The following steps can help you with data recovery strategy, given below:

1. Categorization of your data

create different folders or categories of your data and where it is stored. Categories might include high critical, valuable, regulated, or something important. Once you have categorised your data, then protect it with password or anything accordingly. Further, you can also initiate data backup.

2. Identify your attacker

you need to know where your weaknesses are to identify where ransomware attackers might come from. Like with your data, you can determine where you have shared your data or given critical information. Categorise endpoints to determine priority and ensure higher safety protection appropriately.

3. Determine your recovery plan

create a ransomware data recovery plan for all data. You should do the recovery of your data as fast as possible or connect with data recovery service to prevent any damage and ensure proper recovery. 

4. Protect your backups

Backups are one of the most helpful options that one obviously knows to be secure and accessible. You need to make sure your backups are as protected and available whenever you need them. 

5. Duplicate data

you should store at least one copy of data either online, offline, or both. Duplication of data ensures that even if on-site backups are encrypted with ransomware you still can restore your data. When storing these copies, make sure to secure data just as you would for the primary copy.

Conclusion:
