Securing semiconductor workloads and data against ransomware - AWS Prescriptive Guidance

Securing semiconductor workloads and data against ransomware

Ransomware is a malicious software that is designed to block access to a computer system or data until a payment is made. Unfortunately, this type of attack is prevalent across the internet and can affect enterprises of any size. Aside from financial loss and reputational damage, semiconductor companies must prevent operational disruption because disruptions can cause large, cascading supply chain affects across the business ecosystem. It can also result in the loss of valuable intellectual property.

To help protect against ransomware, semiconductor companies must be vigilant to secure all aspects of their on-premises and cloud environments, especially systems that store, process, or transmit data. AWS provides many architecture designs and controls that can help protect against these types of incidents. In addition to the controls mentioned in this guide, see the following AWS resources about protecting cloud workloads from ransomware:
