Identify and protect yourself against ransomware

Global ransomware attacks

What is ransomware?

Ransomware is a maliciously created malware that finds and encrypts an organization’s files and storage.

Through entry points like phishing emails, users can unintentionally allow this attack into the organization.

Cybercriminals use this malware to extort money from the organization, which is given the option to pay a usually high ransom to unencrypt the data or rely on backup to restore. However, many ransomware attacks also seek out all production and backup files and documents. By encrypting those too, the attack leaves the organization no choice but to meet the cybercriminals’ demands.
