Ransomware: Don’t let your data be held hostage

February 26, 2019

Ransomware is one of the hottest white-collar crimes of the 21st century1. Incidences are skyrocketing and cybercriminals have set their sights on more vulnerable small- and medium-sized businesses, as they usually have less resources to ward off an attack and are more likely to pay a ransom to retrieve encrypted files. Unlike other types of malware that simply destroys data, ransomware is different in that there is an out: the criminals want to get paid and you may be able to recover your data. But is that the best course of action? This White Paper is intended to educate SMBs about ransomware attacks and to provide simple action steps that every business can take to avoid falling victim in the first place, as well as recommendations for recovering if an attack should occur.
