一个不断处于信息技术现代化尖端的世界里,网络攻击几乎是不可避免的。IT领导者必须继续评估他们的备份过程,以确保他们仍然受到保护,免受这些迫眉睫的威胁。如果没有正确的解决方案,州和地方机构将面临潜的严重数据漏洞

全国各地的公民都感受到了勒索软件攻击对社会的影响。  造成东海岸天然气短缺的袭击 D.C.Metro警察局 发布员工个人信息的攻击,以及 Oldsmar Water Hack 这可能会破坏佛罗里达州的饮用水,许多人现有理由质疑我们各级政府网络安全基础设施的实力

解决成本问题

殖民地的管道袭击事件中,尽管赎金被全额支付,但天然气短缺的影响波及东海岸。华盛顿特区警察局没有支付这笔钱 400万美元 黑客要求收费恢复信息,导致员工信息泄露。这两起案件中,勒索软件受害者由于其组织的脆弱性,运营和财务上都付出了高昂的代价

这些数字让各种规模的机构望而生畏。发生攻击时支付赎金并不能保证攻击的影响可以减轻。然而,有了正确的数据安全流程,首先承受这些成本的可能性可以大大降低

英文译文:

Citizens across the country are feeling the effects that a ransomware attack can have on society. Between the Colonial Pipeline attack that caused gas shortages on the East Coast, the D.C. Metro Police Department attack that released personal information of employees, and the Oldsmar Water Hack that could have devastated Florida drinking water, many now have cause to question the strength of our cybersecurity infrastructure at all levels of government.

Combating cost concerns

In the case of the Colonial Pipeline attack, the effects of the gas shortage rippled down the East Coast in spite of the ransom—$5 million—being paid in full. The D.C. Metro Police Department did not pay the $4 million fee demanded by hackers to restore information, resulting in the release of employee information. In both cases, the ransomware victim paid a high price operationally and financially due to their organization’s vulnerability.

These numbers are daunting for agencies of all sizes. Paying the ransom in the event of an attack is not a guarantee that the effects of the attack can be mitigated. Nevertheless, with the right data security processes in place, the likelihood of enduring these costs in the first place can be reduced significantly.

Cyberattacks have become almost inevitable in a world constantly on the cusp of IT modernization. IT leaders must continue to evaluate their backup processes to ensure that they remain protected against these imminent threats. Without the right solutions, state and local agencies face potentially crippling data vulnerabilities.
