Ransomware attacks are a serious threat to industries worldwide. According to the FBI, ransomware collected $209 million in the first three months of 2016 and is on pace to reach $1 billion in 2016. While healthcare organizations are the most publicized victims, this is a growing threat across all industries.
There are two common types of ransomware; lock screen, such as FakeBsod & Brolo, which lock screens and ask for payment to unlock them and encryption, such as CryptyWall, Lock and TorrentLocker, which encrypt data on a drive and demand payment to unlock it.
With ransomware evolving into a more complex and frequent phenomenon, organizations should follow common best practices for data protection, including the 3-2-1 principle: THREE copies of data on TWO different types of media and ONE copy stored offsite.
