Ransomware - Is Your Business Ready?
Ransomware is a category of viruses that encrypts files on a victim’s computer and keeps them locked until the victim pays up. If you don’t pay the criminals who spread it—up to $5,000 per user, according to the FBI—you lose the files forever.
Imagine you arrive at your office to find all your computers padlocked, and a man in a mask demanding $5,000 per user to give you the key. That’s what ransomware is like.
Numerous tech publications have listed ransomware among the biggest digital threats facing businesses today. This is due to its capacity to slip through corporate security and its potential to replicate itself across a corporate network. The first ransomware targeting Macs has recently been spotted in the wild.
