What We Can Learn from Bad Rabbit – the Latest Ransomware Outbreak

By: Adam Stahl
October 30th, 2017

Last week the third major ransomware outbreak in 2017 was spreading through Eastern Europe and even starting to creep further across the globe. So far striking Russia and Ukraine the most, Bad Rabbit has disrupted industries ranging from media outlets to banks. Some reports even have the attack showing up right here in the U.S. Similar to the Petya/NotPetya ransomware outbreak earlier this year (so similar in fact that Bad Rabbit reportedly shares 2/3 of its code with variants of Petya), this ransomware encrypts a system, requests a ransom (the current rate is about $285 in bitcoin) to decrypt the victim’s files, and then attempts to spread itself across the network. With ransomware and cyberattacks commonplace in today’s world, what takeaways can come out of the Bad Rabbit outbreak to help prevent these types of attacks from derailing your organization?

Why You Need a Disaster Recovery Plan To Keep Your Business Safe

By: Matt Kozloski
March 23rd, 2017

“We’re really excited to start creating our disaster recovery plan!” Said no one, ever. Perhaps it’s not the most exciting project, but do you want to know what’s less fun than working on a disaster recovery plan? Working to fix a disaster that happened with no contingency in place. Just like having insurance, a disaster recovery plan is designed so that when the worst happens you have support, guidance and resources to correct the issue and move on. From a technology standpoint, this is essential for business continuity, and in some cases, compliance. One misconception about disaster planning is that it’s some huge gorilla of a project that requires significant effort and investment. The truth is it doesn’t have to be, and there are a lot of things you can do on a small scale that have a big effect.
