It can happen to the best of us. While the cloud is a pretty safe place in general, especially if you have taken the time and care to select the best cloud platform provider, hacks and attacks do happen, and sometimes they are successful.

When your business is under attack by ransomware or hackers, there are a few things you should and shouldn’t do. Here are the actions you should stay away from:

Don’t Start Your Own Counterattack

This is not a fist fight in your favourite bar. You can’t see your attackers, and you don’t know anything about them. Launching a counterattack is only guaranteed to cost you a lot of time and money.

Worst case scenario, you end up opening your business for a full on blast of data theft. Instead, close down all your systems and remove the IP addresses. Then it’s time to figure out what happened.

Don’t Get Emotional About Getting Back On The Cloud

Don’t let one hack ruin the benefits and features the cloud has to offer. Many enterprises switch from data centre to cloud due to the promise of greater security.

Don’t reverse the process after an attack. Instead of getting emotional and spending your time and money to move infrastructure and platforms, you should invest in learning from your mistakes and improving your security strategy and tools.
