The malicious ransomware attack carried out internationally last week resulted in significant disruption and/or financial loss to many organisations, including the NHS.
The attack has further emphasised the need for businesses to maintain and enforce a robust IT security policy. The malicious ransomware attack gained access to business systems via an infected email attachment which was opened by users within the affected organisations. This is one of many ways malicious software can access systems, and such methods can be missed by antivirus software!
Having a custom security policy is the only way to plug the protection gaps that cannot be filled by antivirus software and other automated protection systems.
