On a daily basis, organizations are targeted by cybersecurity threats. While these threats occur throughout the world, half of ransomware detections occur in the U.S. Today, the internet of everything, mobile devices, underfunded/staffed IT organizations and a critical lack of trained cybersecurity professionals are combining to make things more difficult. As ransomware attacks become more prevalent and the effectiveness of phishing attempts become more sophisticated, all but the largest IT organizations are fortunate if they can keep pace.
We know cyber attackers are becoming more refined and are searching for new ways to make a profit. Thanks to advances in attack distribution, anonymous payments, reliably encrypting and decrypting data, ransomware attacks are rising dramatically. Understanding the dangers of ransomware, and how to prevent them, has never has been more important.
