The number of organisations being targeted by ransomware is increasing.
The ransomware increase is frightening and is the number one malware attack affecting organisations today. It encrypts your files and holds them hostage until the ransom is paid, causing massive disruption to business productivity, and putting at risk your cash reserves.
Sensitive files get encrypted, and large amounts of money are demanded to restore the files. Generally, the attacker has a list of file extensions or folder locations that the ransomware will target for encryption.
Due to the encryption of the files, it can be virtually impossible to reverse-engineer the encryption or “crack” the files without the original encryption key, which only the attackers will have access to.
Our first advice is to ensure company-confidential, sensitive, or important files are securely backed up in a remote, un-connected backup or storage facility. We can help you to ensure your data is secure and recoverable in the event of a ransomware attack.
