Ransomware is typically initiated via phishing or social engineering tactics, these attacks often take advantage of human error for the successful delivery of the malware. These criminal organizations are impartial to the size of your organization. They target any company with data, and if you don’t pay the ransom, your information could be posted to a public forum or sold on the Dark Web for profit. Most companies unfortunately are forced to pay due to system failure and file corruption.
The scariest about these methods is that the Ransomware doesn’t need to be developed by the attackers. Ransomware services can now be purchased on the DarkWeb and used at the Cybercriminal’s will (RAAS). As these Ransomware attacks and services evolve, how can companies arm themselves with the right solutions to defend themselves from these ever-growing attacks?
