Ransomware Protection

Plan, Build Resilience, and be Prepared to Respond Decisively

Ransomware is a constant threat to all organizations across the world, but how each organization chooses to address this issue means the difference between riding out the waves and going down with the ship.

Prepare With Intent

While it's widely accepted that phishing is the most common cyber attack faced by organizations of all sizes, ransomware is what keeps security professionals, and the C-Suite up at night.

Apollo’s Strategy for Success: Diagnosis Before Prescription

While we consistently deliver results for clients across multiple verticals, we know that every client’s situation is unique and we do not take the “one-size-fits-all” approach that seems to be commonplace. To this end, we employ a proprietary end-to-end methodology that ensures we are able to consistently deliver results.

Cut Through the Noise

What are the Critical Assets?

While it's great to understand every asset in the organization, today's business landscape requires prioritization and capital rationing, so your strategy should align and first focus on what assets are most important to protect.

What is the Risk Tolerance for Losses Against Those Assets?

It's critically important to understand what management’s tolerance for risk is when it comes to cybersecurity. Losses can stack up quickly and the risk environment is dynamic, so as risk levels fluctuate, it's important to ensure the security program keeps security performance in line with acceptable risk tolerance.

What is Your Real Risk Position Against Those Assets?

It's critically important to understand what management’s tolerance for risk is when it comes to cybersecurity. Losses can stack up quickly and the risk environment is dynamic, so as risk levels fluctuate, it's important to ensure the security program keeps security performance in line with acceptable risk tolerance.

Build the Right Strategy

The Right Team

The right team starts with a subject matter expert who understands both your business and cybersecurity equally. Often referred to as the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) or the Chief Security Officer (CSO) this is your firm’s cybersecurity quarterback; someone with the experience and expertise to drive the strategy and effectively message the results to executive leadership and the Board.

The next component is the security staff, a combination of specialists and generalists who are adequately trained and equipped to execute the strategy. Like any business function, substandard team members and equipment will return similar results. In the world of cyber threats, this is a risky proposition, even in lean financial times, cutting these team members could have impactful consequences down the road.

Finally, the right executive management and business governance are required to ensure management effectively manages this risk and engages in risk and investment trade-off discussions. So often it is not a technology or people issue that stands in the way of security, but a high-risk business process that needs to be discussed and evaluated for acceptability in risk.

The Right Tools

Also critical for the security strategy is having the security team armed with the right tools so they can detect the ever-advancing threats when they come, defend the organization, and execute the plan from leadership.

In many organizations we see excessive tools in one or two functions and no tools in other areas, this lack of balance creates vulnerabilities and holes for attackers to exploit.

Further, a common problem is that investment in tools does not produce the expected results and return on risk reduction because of configuration or implementation failures.

Getting the right tools deployed correctly and focused on the risks driven by the intelligence program is crucial for effective protection.

The Right Execution

Finally, the right execution is vital, and this involves having the cumulative resources of the security strategy deployed, executed, and management in an effective manner. Security programs are as much about people and culture as they are about technology and controls.

Security intelligence allows a business to act boldly and make actionable decisions to manage risk while enabling the business to accel and expand. A cogent business conversation about risk priority, combined with an experienced security team and the right tools focused on what the business sees as critical can changed results overnight and make the business more competitive.

Selection the Right Solution

Expert Advice

Selecting the right Ransomware Protection solution, like any technology, can be a daunting task that often requires professional advice.

The solution arena changes every day and understanding the value of advice is a key aspect of getting the right advice.
