Should You Worry About Ransomware?
There’s a new threat in cybersecurity these days, and it’s called ransomware. Ransomware is malicious code that worms it’s way in your network. Once it copies the majority of the files on your servers, it encrypts them into a secured file which can only be opened by the attackers. Oftentimes, this code is imported onto your network by careless employees opening questionable emails. These hackers then demand money, typically bitcoin or another cryptocurrency, to restore your file system. If you weren’t properly backing up your files, or have sensitive information that has been stolen, sometimes organizations feel like they are forced into paying. Don’t put yourself in this position! By using the right cybersecurity company, you can make yourself a difficult target for these hackers looking to exploit you.
