This is not a simple answer to give but its something that we get asked all of the time, so here are some basic tips to keep in mind.
To best explain we will go through a couple of scenarios that may be common incidents in your day to day lives and give some basic recommendations of what you should do.
Saying that they have breached your accounts and want you to pay a ransom or they will share all of your history.
This type of scam email is hitting inboxes all over the world in large numbers lately and although not technically a breach, because they are indicating that they have breached your systems it was enough to add it in. Hopefully, we can help make some of you feel much more comfortable that you haven’t actually been breached.
What should you do in this situation:
This will probably be the type of incident that most will have possibly already experienced. Unfortunately, it is a huge problem that has only been getting worse over the past 12 months especially ransomware.
You walk in after lunch and you see a ransomware message on your screen saying that all your files have been locked and it will cost you $$$ in bitcoins to get them unlocked. What should you do now?
This type of incident or breach is a little harder to detect especially if your systems are not monitored with a reliable security platform.
Have you noticed PC’s being logged in at strange hours, emails being sent that are not being sent by you or you are receiving bouncebacks? What about your systems dramatically reducing in performance (this one could be many things but certainly could be a systems breach).
We hope that the above advice will help you all feel more comfortable about what you should do in case of a security incident or breach. It is important that we react as best we can to these types of events as the right decision could make the difference in full systems lost or just a minor inconvenience.
