CryptoLocker Guide

           CryptoLocker is one of the most common strains of ransomware attacking companies around the world every single day. In a recent global survey of over 1,000 IT service providers, 95 percent reported recent encounters with CryptoLocker infecting small business clients. CryptoLocker renders its victim’s files unreadable using encryption, then demands payment to un-encrypt them.

Typically, CryptoLocker ransom demands are not particularly high—usually in the range of $200 to $500. However, the cost of downtime associated with ransomware can add up quickly, especially if the malware spreads beyond a single computer and onto your company’s network. Recent statistics report that 63 percent of small-to-midsized businesses have suffered business-threatening downtime as a result of a successful ransomware attack.

Businesses, in particular, can (and should) minimize the impact of CryptoLocker and other forms of ransomware. This guide offers an overview of what you can do to protect yourself from these cyber attacks and how to recover quickly in the (not so rare) case you do fall victim.

Preventing a CryptoLocker infection is obviously the best possible way to avoid downtime. However, there is no single defense solution currently on the market that can 100 percent guarantee ransomware prevention for businesses. Instead, step up your data protection game with these leading recommendations for increasing your front line of defense.
  • Install reputable anti-virus and firewall technology;
  • Ensure all applications are patched and up-to-date;
  • Proceed with caution when opening emails; Do not click links or open email attachments you aren’t expecting; verify the contents of the attachment first
  • PRO TIP: Right click the link and copy the URL then paste it into a new browser window to be certain that the link doesn’t lead to a malicious website; and
  • Ensure that all employees are trained on these email best practices - phishing scams are the #1 cause of the success of ransomware today

Importance of Backup software

Data backup software can help you protect and restore your data when something goes wrong. Depending on the software you choose, this could be a quick and painless process or a slow and arduous one.
Don’t be left out in the cold without your important documents again. Get data backup software and keep what should have remained on your computer the entire time.
Just because computers aren’t perfect doesn’t mean your efforts to protect your data should be.

 

The following risk factors represent a constant threat to your data:
Malware :
Malware is a broad category of malicious programs, including viruses, spyware and adware that can threaten your computer and data.
Theft :
There’s not much hope that you’ll recover data from a computer that’s been stolen. Protect your files from loss by theft by regularly backing up files to the cloud or an external drive.
Human Error :
Data loss is not always maliciously caused by others. You might accidentally delete or change an important file by accident. Having a backup can save a file from a tragic mistake.
Physical damage:
Physical damage can come from a variety of sources. A disaster, an accident or just simple wear and tear over time can wreak havoc on your computer. If you have a laptop, all you have to do is drop it and it may refuse to start up, requiring expensive repairs. If your data is backed up, you can easily move it all to a new device.
Sudden, Catastrophic Failure :
This is the risk no one sees coming. A computer can fail catastrophically at any time for seemingly no reason. The only way to be sure your data is safe is to back it up.

Any one of these risk factors can strike at any time, putting your important and personal files in. Remember to back up your data regularly.
