with security there is no „done“
there is just constant iterations of the question:
- is my system safe?
- Did i leave any doors (too wide) open?
- Am i allowing any unsafe programs/services?
- How can i protect users and data?
- Does my backup procedure work?
- you should ALWAYS have one complete backup at a separate place not physically connected to your company’s network
- Also test: how long will it take to restore the backup?
- the more data, the longer it will take to restore
Open Source and Closed-Source software… both got flaws that can be exploited to extract money and or bitcoins from victims or halt infrastructure for quiet a significant amount of time (also hospitals can get virus infections… not funny!).
Let yourself be educated by security researches – to estimate – what is possible today – and maybe in the future – and do your best to stay safe.
Update yourself! Update your software! (maybe on a test-system first… to see what the fix breaks)
backup the backup! X-D

Qualcomm but also Cisco are all US based manufacturers known to implement backdoors ON PURPOSE probably for gov agencies to spy and collect data on you – the citizen – that they are so afraid of.
