Backup and replication as a ransomware defense strategy for schools
It’s becoming increasingly common for ransomware authors to directly attack high-value targets like schools. Following a successful attack, an attacker may demand millions of dollars in ransom money. Even if paying the ransom was an option, doing that doesn’t guarantee that data can be recovered. The best way that an organization can protect itself against ransomware attacks is to implement a backup system that guarantees the recoverability of data.
