How to prevent ransomware attacks

Ransomware attacks have become a top cybersecurity concern, with criminals targeting everything from critical infrastructure to hospitals and government agencies, and demanding tens of millions of dollars in ransom. Unfortunately, ransomware is a complex cybersecurity problem with no silver bullet to address this menace. Thankfully the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) released guidance on identifying and protecting assets against ransomware. The Cybersecurity Special Publication (SP) 1800-25 lays out the steps to having a comprehensive strategy around protecting assets.

Thales Trusted Cyber Technologies (TCT) data security and access management solutions provide some of the most essential components of the cybersecurity framework proposed by NIST to protect organizations against ransomware. Thales’ industry-leading portfolio provides organizations the ability to:

Control Access

  • Manage identities, credentials and authentication
  • Manage remote access, privileges and permission

Protect Data

  • Protect sensitive data-at-rest in the cloud and on-premises
  • Protect sensitive data in transit
  • Manage encryption keys

Identify Vulnerabilities

  • Discover and classify sensitive data
  • Assess risk and prioritize protection

Mitigate

  • Mitigate risk with intelligent protection
  • Audit all access events to all systems
