In 2019, the U.S. was hit by a record number of ransomware attacks that impacted at least 948 government agencies, educational institutions and healthcare facilities at a cost of more than $7.5 billion by a conservative estimate.
Unfortunately, there is no single silver bullet to stop ransomware. However, according to lessons learned from Florida municipality ransomware attacks, the following will help mitigate ransomware:
- backup solutions and associated testing services
- endpoint, network and cloud security
- cybersecurity awareness training
- patch management; and
- two-factor authentication (2FA)
