Ransomware is a type of malicious software that threatens to publish the victim's data or perpetually block access to it unless a ransom is paid. Some simple ransomware may lock the system in a way which is not difficult for a knowledgeable person to reverse. However, more advanced malware encrypts the victim's files, making them inaccessible, and demands a ransom payment to decrypt them. In a properly implemented crypto-viral extortion attack, recovering the files without the decryption key is extremely unlikely. Ransomware attacks are increasing in frequency and sophistication. Join our discussion regarding Ransomware’s impact on the Enterprise and how to protect your business.
