Critical Challenges in Recovering Data
Our customer had significant difficulty in recovering its data after a ransomware assault that affected billing backups and interfered with essential operations like sales, orders, and payments. The timely delivery of medications to hospitals was negatively impacted by the encryption of vital databases, especially the Marg database. As talks with the attackers turned out to be untrustworthy, the situation grew more complex, and the technical team was left to deal with the challenging work of recovery.
The customer was informed by the technical team that an extensive recovery was highly unlikely due to the ransomware attack's indiscriminate encryption of important databases and files. The team told the client that a complete recovery could not be guaranteed, acknowledging the gravity and complexity of the case. At a pivotal point in the decision-making process, the customer showed resilience by acknowledging the reality and providing permission to recover whatever data was salvageable. They understood the complexities and difficulties associated with the recovery procedure. This case study explores the complex issues that arose during the recovery process and the tactical choices that were made to lessen the effects on business operations and client relationships.
