cyber extortion

Ransomware is a form of malware that encrypts a victim's files. After infecting the device, the attacker requests a ransom from the victim to restore access to the data. Users receive instructions on how to pay the ransom to get the decryption key. Costs can range from a few hundred dollars to thousands, payable to cybercriminals in Bitcoin.

ransomware purposes

There are several ways attackers choose the organizations they target with ransomware. Sometimes it's a matter of opportunity. For example, attackers might target universities because they tend to have less efficient security teams and a user base that does a lot of file sharing, which makes it easier to penetrate their defenses. Today, ransomware attacks don't measure the damage. Both large companies and hospitals are objective. That is why you should strengthen the first line of defense, which is the employees.
