Your data is vital to your business; you need to have serious security measures put in place to protect it from ransomware. This year ransomware attacks are ramping up, so your business should prepare to deal with it. One of the best ways to deal with ransomware is to have a bulletproof data restoration plan.
What is Ransomware?
Perhaps one of the most brutal threats, ransomware encrypts your files and demands payment for the decryption key. Thanks to the unfortunate success of ransomware like Petya, WannaCry, and Cryptolocker, more attacks are likely.
The Future of Ransomware: Yikes
Ransomware will continue to increase throughout the rest of 2018. One of the worst things about ransomware is how easy it is to get into. As of 2017, there are easy-use ransomware kits, and even ransomware-for-hire services for sale. Now it’s easily accessible to any evil person who wants it. In the future ransomware will probably use advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, which will allow for even more effective means of distribution.
