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.
Thinking “it won’t happen to us” is one of the biggest mistakes a business can make when it comes to cybersecurity. Every organization is at risk of data breach, systems hack, malware or ransomware attack, or the cybercriminal illicitly accessing their network’s processing power.
