A question of when, not if

A growing menace

The last couple of years has seen a big uptick in cyberattacks using ransomware, where hackers lock you out of your data until you pay up. Our unique Ransomware Readiness service gives you a complete, end-to-end and accurate picture of where you are on your cyber resilience journey, covering your teams, systems processes and procedures by undertaking technical control testing to gauge the preparedness levels of your discovery, protection, detection and response capabilities.

We’re also seeing more extortion ware attacks, which carry the added threat of releasing your data into the public domain. At Acora, our Ransomware Readiness Service will provide you with a full report, together with objectives and remediation measures, enabling you to test and refine your cyber security posture to ensure its resilience against ransomware attacks.

We’ll also define the ‘blast radius’ of a ransomware attack if it did manage to penetrate your cyber security perimeter. For example, we’ll determine what and where an attacker could reach from one of your endpoints with standard user privileges.

Prove you can prevent or endure a cyberattack

Lock them out for good with Ransomware Readiness

Ransomware Readiness is designed to give you repeatable, transparent and measurable evidence to support decision-making, planning and investments in your cyber resilience against ransomware.

It can take as little as four days to get an evidential view of your cyber resilience through drilling and tabletop exercises. Technical control testing can take as little as 15 days to provide a real-world view of the level of preparedness of the discovery, protection, detection and response capabilities of your cyber security program investments. Combine both to get an end-to-end view.

The service can be tailored to meet your specific needs and where you are in your program rollout or maturity.
