- Are backups really secure? 3 answers
From my understanding, most ransomware works in the background until they are finished with encrypting all their chosen files.
I assume that while the ransomware work in the background, if I plug in my external USB hard drive to make a daily (or weekly) backup, the ransomware would also target my external hard drive rendering my backup useless.
What is a good backup strategy to counter ransomware?
