Ransomware is no longer just a consumer problem. In the first three months of 2016, law enforcement officials estimate that criminals used ransomware to extort $209 million from businesses and institutions, according to a recent whitepaper by Crowdstrike. That figure is expected to grow as ransomware continues to spread and evolve into new, more dangerous threats.
In the white paper, Ransomware: A Growing Enterprise Threat, Crowdstrike outlines some of the new malware variants and new ways scammers are making a fortune from individuals and businesses trying to go about their normal operations. What is ransomware? How has it evolved? Where is it going? What can you do to halt it? The paper explains the technology and human problems and some important fixes.
