Office supplies biz owned by UK council shrugs off ransomware demand for 102 Bitcoin



We're always talking about backups, but this raises an interesting thought for me. Wouldn't it be sensible to set up an entirely unrelated emergency domain (or Gmail account, yes) which you specify in your contracts as an authoritative secondary, from a business perspective...?

I'm sure its not simple to recover a business without usable backups for all systems, but if you can continue to communicate and trade its got to be easier.
