World Backup Day Quote from John Shier, field CTO, Sophos

Without complete, reliable backups, ransomware attack victims could be forced to make choices they might otherwise avoid, such as paying a ‘basic’ ransom or paying an even higher than normal ransom because there’s no other recourse to get that data back.

As you are aware, World Backup Day is observed on March 31, 2024. As enterprises increasingly digitize, protecting critical data becomes vital. Regular backups shield against cyber threats, hardware malfunctions, or inadvertent errors, ensuring uninterrupted operations and bolstering resilience against potential disruptions, thereby safeguarding business continuity and integrity.

“Backups are integral to an organization’s resilience. Therefore, it’s not surprising that attackers proactively attempt to compromise them. Early detection and a swift response to anomalous activity on a network can prevent attackers from reaching backups in the first place. Without complete, reliable backups, ransomware attack victims could be forced to make choices they might otherwise avoid, such as paying a ‘basic’ ransom or paying an even higher than normal ransom because there’s no other recourse to get that data back. Ransomware attacks can have serious impacts on business operations; without dependable options for recovery, they can be devastating.” John Shier, field CTO, Sophos
