20 Sep Winthrop and Barracuda keeping business safe
Ransomware is real and growing
In recent years we have seen more computer systems being seized and attackers are demanding payment in return for unlocking the assets. There have been cases in which hackers took control of the backup application, to disable all users in the organization and stop them logging into their accounts and erased all data! Paying the ransom will not solve the problem. Recent research shows that 80% of companies that paid a ransom were attacked again.
Many organisations don’t realise that while traditional ransomware exploits known vulnerabilities to hack into organizations, hackers are also using PHISHING as a vector for more sophisticated ransomware attacks. To overcome these new tactics, organizations should strengthen malware and phishing email detection and user security awareness training.
