GET SMART ABOUT RANSOMWARE: PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR ORGANIZATION
What would you do if your organization's data was held ransom, and the only way to get it back was to pay someone $17,000? That's exactly what Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center did earlier this year. Ransomware is a type of malicious software restricting access to a victim’s infected computer, demanding the victim pay money to get that access back. While the average ransom is only a few hundred dollars for individuals, hackers are beginning to target large organizations and demanding much larger sums of money. Do you think you're doing enough to protect yourself against ransomware threats?
