Are Your Files Being Held for Ransom?

by

In cybersecurity, people are the weakest link. If your employees use the internet, you face the threat of your network being infected by ransomware.

Ransomware is malware that is received via email, websites or website ads. It encrypts files and holds them hostage until a ransom is paid to the perpetrators. The threat of this will continue to rise because it’s a “volume business.” Cybercriminals are making millions from this malware by holding essential business files hostage.

CryptoLocker was introduced in September 2013 and targets all versions of Microsoft Windows. Learn more about how to prevent these threats and others.
