Just like other cyber threats, ransomware attacks are getting more advanced. The programs used by these criminals are faster and smarter than ever before, finding and encrypting large amounts of information in record time. In addition, skilled hackers are finding more ways to access your files and breach your network. They can even destroy your backup files so that the stolen information becomes more valuable to you, the user, making you more likely to pay the ransom.
So how do you protect yourself from this growing threat? Having strong anti-malware protection is a great start. Followed by, restricting user access and privileges and making sure that anyone who uses your network has up-to-date security training. Having an informed team that knows the signs of these attacks continues to be your strongest line of defense against cyber criminals.
