It has been reported on over the past 2 years that effective security controls should safeguard you against ransomware. But what happens if you are hit, how can you deal with the aftermath?

Ransomware has been identified as the most frequent threat in the cyber-attack landscape, with only 13% of respondents able to avoid paying a ransom after an attack, according to a digital forensic software company who carried out a survey.
Digital forensics is going to play a central role in helping enterprises protect their most valuable digital assets over the next several years. As companies are being targeted for phishing attacks, malware, insider threats, and the list goes on, it is obvious that all companies will fall victim of a cyber attack - its not IF , its when.. And when it happens, the companies need to be ready to respond. Whether its a personal data breach, IP breach or quite simply and internal disciplinary matter...
But how can they be ready.. they can have state of the art tooling at their disposal, with large teams supporting it, or they can partner with already established incident response teams and digital forensics experts who can assist in the investigations. It is clear that investment and budgets are required to not only stay safe but to investigate when a breach occurs. If proper structures in place, investigations into cuber security incidents are seamless and recovery of the incident is not impacting.
