Ransomware attacks are on the rise, having increased seven-fold in just the past year. Worse yet, ransomware attacks are becoming more and more dangerous, as attackers encrypt more data and demand larger ransoms to restore it. A single attack can cost your business hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Adding to the severity of ransomware attacks is the fact that they are constantly evolving, making it more difficult to prevent and defend against them. As soon as one popular ransomware variation begins to steal the headlines, another one pops up in its place.

What is Ransomware?
Ransomware is a form of malware (malicious software) that threatens to publish a victim’s data, or prevents access to their systems or personal files unless a ransom is paid. Files may be encrypted until a sum of money in cryptocurrency is paid in order to restore access.
Generally malware that enables an attacker to deploy ransomware arrives in the form an unsuspecting file or link in an email. For example, you could receive an email from what looks like your bank or workplace, asking you to “log in” to your “account”. The link would then redirect to a malicious, downloadable and executable file, thereby giving attackers a solid foothold into your system.
Once inside, hackers are able to move laterally, run scripting, and launch an attack.
