Someone in your company gets an email. It looks legitimate, but with one click on a link, or one download of an attachment, everyone is locked out of your network. That link downloaded software that holds your data hostage. That’s a ransomware attack.
The attackers ask for money or cryptocurrency, but even if you pay, you don’t know if the cybercriminals will keep your data or destroy your files. Meanwhile, the information you need to run your business and sensitive details about your customers, employees, and company are now in criminal hands. Ransomware can take a serious toll on your business.
