The cybercrime menace
Businesses face a growing cybercrime threat, with an attack happening every 39 seconds on average and the World Economic Forum (WEF) ranking cyber-crime as one of the top 10 threats for both impact and likelihood. Even if you have the best perimeter security money can buy, trusted employees inside your network may accidentally or deliberately compromise systems and data. So it’s a question of when—not if—a cyber attack will succeed.
The cost of a cyber attack can be devastating. The NotPetya malware caused £7 billion of damage, including £600 million at Merck (pharmaceuticals), £280 million at TNT Express (logistics) and £275 million at Saint-Gobain (construction).
Traditional backup and recovery can’t protect you against threats like these—because malware will actively seek to encrypt or delete your backups.
With a cyber recovery solution from Northdoor as a last line of defence, you gain:
- Scheduled copies of your critical data throughout the day
- Isolated (“air-gapped”) vaults of data
- Immutable unchangeable backups of critical data
- Automated checks on the integrity of protected data
- Smart tools for rapid and effective recovery.

Keep data safe from ransomware with cyber recovery
A cyber attack happens every 39 seconds. Learn how Northdoor protects your data even if your cyber defences are breached.
Build a last line of defence
Cybercrime causes billions of pounds of economic damage annually. And even if you could make your IT perimeter completely secure, you’d still be at risk from accidental or malicious insider activity.
With the Northdoor Cyber Recovery Solution, you can ensure that vital data is safeguarded and get back to business quickly—even if malware compromises your backups.
See our infographic for more details on how to protect your business from cybercrime.
Organisations need a way to back up data so that it can’t be changed — an immutable backup — together with the ability to understand when production data has been corrupted.
The threat—and why DR is not enough
Businesses face increasingly diverse and complex cybercrime threats from multiple sources:
- “Script-kiddies” using free or paid malware
- Criminals seeking to steal or encrypt data for financial gain
- Nation states using sophisticated cyber weaponry without regard for those caught in the crossfire
- Hacktivists attempting to shut down businesses
- Insider threats from employees or partners.
These threats are not just hypothetical: Dell EMC research discovered that 82% of organisations have experienced some kind of compromise on a production system.
The vast majority of businesses today have well managed disaster recovery (DR) plans, in which data is backed up and can be restored if something happens to the main copy.
So why, according to the Global Data Protection Index Survey 2020 Snapshot, do 69% of IT decision makers lack confidence in their ability to reliably recover all business-critical data in the event of a cyber attack?
It’s because malware, especially ransomware, typically works undetected for a period, meaning that it also compromises and damages your backups. The time taken to respond and recover to a cyber attack using traditional methods is also untenable for most. With the average recovery time to full operation following a cyber-attack being in the weeks or months – the financial, trust and reputational damage caused can be an existential threat for many organisations. Having a solution in place to recover to full operation in hours or days significantly reduces the impact on your business.
Alongside your existing DR plans, you need a last line of defence: air-gapped immutable backups of key data, supplemented by smart technology that identifies and halts suspicious activity, and that accelerates the recovery and resumption of normal operations.
