Unlike attacks that try to steal data or those that hold it hostage with ransomware, data manipulation attacks can be hard to detect. This blog sheds light on this kind of attacks and how to defend against them.
Ransomware strikes someone every 10 seconds around the globe, and when it does, it turns their most important files and data into encrypted gibberish. Unfortunately, the only option left for them is: paying the ransom that cyber criminals demand in order to regain access to their valuable data.
Exploiting human instincts seems to be the easier way for cybercriminals to achieve their goals nowadays. The constant rise of social engineering (phishing, spoofing, business email compromise… etc.) is a great proof of this fact.
