Ransomware is not a new phenomenon and has in fact been around for over 20 years. However, it is growing in prevalence and the latest variants are so advanced and malicious, they could completely cripple your business. Have you done enough to protect yourself?

Species such as the crown of thorns have adapted to ward off threats in the most challenging environments. Organizations also need to protect, detect and respond to ever-changing threats.

What is Ransomware?Ransomware is a type of malicious software that typically infects your machine or device and renders the device (or the data on the device) unusable until a ransom is paid. The data is typically rendered unusable by encryption, which is a process of scrambling the information so you can gain access to the data or device if you pay a sum to the cyber criminal that caused the infection.

The sum requested varies, although often has to be paid within a specified time-frame (often 3 days or 7 days), otherwise the data is destroyed and typically lost forever.The latest variants of ransomware can also encrypt entire websites, any backup data you may hold, and even system files in your computer. Some ransomware not only stops you from gaining access to your data, but also threatens to create a privacy issue for you and unless the ransom is paid, it will upload your data to the public Internet.
