Ransomware – Learn More About How to Protect Yourself
Ransomware is a form of malware that targets both human and technical weaknesses in organizations in an effort to deny the availability of critical data and/or systems. When the victim organization determines they are no longer able to access their data, the cyber actor demands the payment of a ransom, at which time the actor purportedly provides an avenue to the victim to regain access to their data. Recent iterations target enterprise end users, making awareness and training a critical preventative measure.
