It’s painfully clear that ransomware attacks aren’t going away anytime soon. In fact, attack techniques and delivery methods have become more sophisticated, prolific, speedy and costly (think Petya and WanaCrypt0r).
Increasingly popular tactics include spear phishing campaigns tailored to a specific person or group of people using personal data, and whaling, which impersonates the email account of a CEO or other executive to infiltrate a network. These methods let ransomware move across networks and organizations at lightning speeds, causing costly downtime (and annoying headaches!) and potentially expensive damage to bottom lines and reputations.
