Don't let ransomware crooks spend months in your network – like this govt agency did

I shoulda been a welder. It's almost like an IT job (especially as a network admin) just isn't worth the money these days, especially in small shops where there's ONE admin, who's also the entire security team. Upper Manglement can't see the point in hiring an actual security guy (until things go to shit and there's a ransomware screen), so all us admins can do is try to keep things patched and locked down, and pray that our antivirus/IDS/IPS and firewall are slightly smarter than the assholes trying to break in and fuck us over.

Yeah, stacking dimes all day looks pretty good right now.
