Just How Dangerous Is Ransomware?

Ransomware is a top threat to businesses today - holding files or systems hostage until a payment is made, usually by encrypting files or threatening permanent deletion. Attacks occur without warning, often with a ransom demand appearing on screen. 2017 has seen the largest attacks to date - the WannaCry and Petya global attacks took down thousands of organizations' IT systems globally.
In 2016, ransomware attacks netted over $1 billion and are growing at a yearly rate of 350%. No industry or type of business is immune, but there are ways to proactively protect your employees and data. Learn how to protect against ransomware in your organization:
