Has your business been hit by ransomware? Ransomware is one of the most worrying cyber threats with a huge potential for damage. The sad part is that this type of malware is on the rise. The ever-evolving technology and the COVID-19 pandemic are said to have contributed to the recent spike in ransomware.
What is Ransomware?
Ransomware is a type of malware developed to encrypt files or systems to deny a user or company access to the files on their devices. Malicious attackers then demand a ransom payment in exchange for the decryption key. Advanced ransomware variants have included additional capabilities like data theft.
Ransomware has become a growing concern for businesses across various industries. These attacks surged by 50% in 2020 and were named one of the leading malware threats for 2021. In Q3 2021, ransomware attack reports increased by 140%.
