A United States government interagency recently reported that, on average, there have been 4,000 daily ransomware attacks in early 2016. This is a 300% increase over the 1,000 daily ransomware attacks reported in 2015. Ransomware exploits human and technical weaknesses in order to gain access to an organization’s network, encrypts the organization’s data, and then denies the organization access to its own data. In order for the organization to regain access to its data, it must pay a ransom, most often in bitcoin, to the ransomware originator. Is your practice actively protecting itself from ransomware attacks?
