Re: BACKUP, BACKUP, BACKUP
@REISEN: Indeed, you raise an important point. Sometimes, security fails, and attacks transcend into BC/DR issues. Whether natural disasters or manmade, these are things you have to plan and account for. Consequently, it's not just a security-team failure; it's an IT-administration failure.

BACKUP, BACKUP, BACKUP
How many of us remember those three hallowed words from 25 years ago???   And yet nobody seems to do it right.  Atlanta lost ALL DASHCAM VIDEOS, ALL OF THEM.  So ANY failure would have killed the lot, not just a ransomware attack.  Server failure, hard drive failure???    DOES anybody have an updated, TESTED, restoration plan in place???  i think not.  IT departments hate to test these as it is hard work and tough on schedules.  BFD.  It has to be tested and for the simple reason that when it is NEEDED AT 2AM ..... well, the mind does not think straight at that hour, does it???    But still crashes don't happen, rigjht???    And ransomware won't get into OUR SYSTEM right????
