Re: Ransomeware --> f**ked without known good working backups.
I work in the NHS, we test our restoration process every 6 months, for every server? no but on a rolling schedule and the process is identical for them with the products we use. We also do full bare metal restores on a 6 months basis so the staff are confident and practised at doing it.
It use to be every quarter but frankly that was overdoing it.
Is this unusual? Possibly but I won't tar all of the NHS IT departments as useless based on your own sole experience, just as I won't claim they're all doing a competent job like mine.
