Ransomware is a serious and growing cyber threat, underscored by recent attacks impacting the legal sector. These attacks are a stark reminder that no matter how robust a security program is, we are always under threat and it is critical for IT teams to stay current and vigilant.
At FRA, we pride ourselves on offering clients the highest levels of data security, and we hold ourselves to that same standard every single day. We actively monitor and analyze cyber threats and have implemented best-in-class technical and operational measures—including a ISO27001 risk management process— specifically designed to prevent ransomware-type attacks and mitigate the spread of ransomware in the event of a compromise.
We perform independent audits on a regular basis, which have re-affirmed that the processes we have in place are robust and market leading. However, even with all the best policies and controls in place, no one is impervious to a cyberattack. The biggest risk-factor for companies—including our own—is human error. That’s why, in addition to our technical and operational measures, we also require our staff, at all levels across our global team, to undergo formal training to prepare them to identify, prevent and mitigate cyber risks and other information security concerns.
Rest assured that we take data security very seriously—it is at the core of our business. If you have any questions, or if you would like to discuss how FRA can help your business address data governance challenges, please contact me or any of our FRA Data Governance, Technology Solutions and Forensics Partners.
