Ransomware is currently considered by many reports as one of the top cybersecurity threats, and for good reason. Not only is data theft a profitable industry, costing companies on average $761,106 per payout, but attackers have taken things a step further by publicly disclosing sensitive data on leak sites. If you discover ransomware in your system, the most important thing to do first is not to panic.
