The Complete Guide to Ransomware

Ransomware, a subset of malware, encrypts data on a victim’s computer, requiring payment to unblock access. Ransomware types include Locker, Crypto, Double extortion, and Ransomware as a service (RaaS). Common methods of infiltration include phishing, Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), and exploitable vulnerabilities. Key targets are education, retail, business, and government sectors. Recommended preventative measures include maintaining robust cybersecurity measures, education of employees, regular patching, and frequent backups. In the event of an attack, organizations should isolate the infected device, identify and remove the ransomware, and restore the system.
