Cyber Risk: Randsomware on the Rise!
Ransomware has been around for a long time, but has only recently increased in popularity due to its potential for higher pay-offs.  According to the FBI Website: In a ransomware attack, 
  1. Victims open a seemingly innocent e-mail and begin the process by clicking on an attachment, or getting directed to a website that infects their computer with malicious software.
  2. Once the infection is present, the malware begins encrypting files and folders, often without the user and/or organization knowing of the attack. 
  3. A message appears demanding payment for access to the files, typically via bitcoin, to increase anonymity. 
  4. If a payment is made, the criminals might hold true to their word and provide a decryption key, but there is no guarentee. Keep in mind, the FBI does not condone the useransom payments.
To minimize the consequences of a ransomeware attack, 
  • Regularly back up and verify your data.  
  • Isoltate backups from other devices
  • Ensure antivirus and anti-malware are run regularly.
