What Can Ransomware Infect?
Did you know that ransomware does not only infect your desktop and any drives you have attached to it, but it can also infect your cloud storage. This has not been reported on as often, but it has happened and will continue to evolve and infect more and more platforms. With this in mind, you need to make sure your backups are being done in such a way that they can detect ransomware. If you are backing up to the cloud you need to ensure that it is as secure as possible to help combat against infection.
Another problem companies are facing is their backups are backing up an infection, which can prevent backed up data from being recovered. This is why it is important to keep multiple instances of your backups. Some backup solutions have begun to build in notification measures to let you know if it detects an abnormal amount of changed files so that you do not overwrite your offsite backups with corruption.
