Cybercrime has of late proved to be a major handicap in the maintenance of secure information technology (IT) systems. It is achieved with the use of malware such as ransomware. Examples of such tools that attacked several sectors of the world economy lately are CryptoLocker and WannaCry. This paper attempts to explore different means of protecting IT systems and measures for easy recovery of attacked ones. Additional important suggestions that organizations normally take for granted (human related) are also presented, because security issues in an organization must be taken as everyone's responsibility.
