What is a Ransomware Readiness Audit?
A ransomware readiness audit is an assessment designed to identify any opportunities for encrypting malware to infect an organization’s technologies and demand a ransom. Our ransomware testing services provide a real-world perspective of cyber risks that would enable ransomware to successfully encrypt your systems and lead to an incident.
Also, ransomware readiness testing is a process of simulating a ransomware attack on an organization in order to assess its ability to defend against and recover from such an attack. This type of testing can help organizations identify weaknesses in their security posture and make improvements to reduce the risk of a successful ransomware attack.

- The audit can also help you assess your current security posture and identify any gaps that could be exploited by attackers.
- The audit can provide recommendations on how to improve your ransomware readiness, such as by implementing better backup and recovery procedures.
- Finally, Ransomware readiness testing can provide numerous benefits to your organization, including improved security posture, reduced risk of a successful ransomware attack, and improved recovery capabilities.
