Re: Ransomware will continue to be effective....
To expand on your thought, I believe that the wider gap is business continuity.  Having data copies offline (out of reach of the encrypting mechanism) is a critical component of BC, but you have to have the plans, people, processes and technology to manage, implement and execute recovery before your business can continue.

Some questions that come to mind that might be useful to address for when the business is disrupted:
  • Prioritize: what is most critical to work on first? 
  • Cross-train: are staff prepared to work outside of their specialty to help overloaded teams?
  • Outsource: are third-parties identified who can spin up and spin down capacity on-demand?
  • Backup suppliers: what if primary suppliers are impacted, too?
  • Referral: could a competitor / alternate source meet urgent needs of customers?
  • Off-site plan: what if buildings and/or their controls are impacted?
  • Mobilize / diversify technologies: can we support BYOD or work-from-home?

Ransomware will continue to be effective....
Ransomware will continue to be effective as long as businesses continue to not have a sufficient data backup program. Its unfortunate, but I don't see ransomware phasing out for quite some time.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
