How to Defend Your Network Against Ransomware

We've all seen the recent headlines of the sheer destruction that ransomware can bring upon your network, but we haven't seen many tips on defending against it. With many companies paying the ransom to criminals after being infected, it's only promoting them to use it more. If they weren't making money off this scheme they won't be using it, but unfortunately they are.

What I'd like to do with this article is spread some common sense in defending against ransomware and ways to assist with mitigating it once it's in your network. Here's the article I wrote for Tripwire explaining a few methods, since everything we do in security is based on layers, there's not a single defense that's going to stop ransomware by itself.
