You get a call on Sunday morning and are told that Azure AD Sync and some other services seems to be down. You do a routine investigation and soon realize nothing is working and all servers and all turned on client has been hit by a ransomware with the result that nothing works, all data is lost, the drives on the backup  servers has been encrypted and deleted, all files on fileservers are encrypted, all database servers are encrypted and so on. Besides panicking, what do you do next? The customer in this real-life-scenario had been hit by a targeted attack (not automated) and turned to us for help.
