Cyberattacks are starting to hit harder than ever – and they are hitting every sector.
Ransomware attacks are becoming more vicious and impactful to our clients. Here are some high-level thoughts on preparing for the next attack.
Ransomware attacks are nothing new, they have been around for ages – the first documented attack being in 1989 known as the AIDS Trojan. This attack set the stage for the more sophisticated attacks we are seeing more frequently today. Infections have steadily increased every year since 2013, reaching record levels last year in 2017.
Recently, these infections have become more advanced and more dangerous. Hackers are now making their software harder to detect. Attackers can now also combine attacks by crafting a software to first hack into a network and then build a second software to capture the keystrokes of the users. With these attacks becoming more complex, it is important to ensure your organization is actively working on security practices and adding layers of protection constantly.
