“Done for You” – Collection of Content on How to Prevent Ransomware

Author: ginasilvertree | Published on July 2, 2016 | Views: 3477


Today, most companies are deeply concerned about how to prevent ransomware. News stories abound and Infosec professionals are scrambling to keep themselves and their users out of the fire.

Below, you’ll find a compilation of content to understand this important topic – from a 360 perspective.

But, first a quick definition. According to Wikipedia: “Ransomware is a type of malware that can be covertly installed on a computer without knowledge or intention of the user that restricts access to the infected computer system in some way, and demands that the user pay a ransom to the malware operators to remove the restriction. The cryptovirology form of the attack has ransomware systematically encrypt files on the system’s hard drive, which becomes difficult or impossible to decrypt without paying the ransom for the decryption key. Other attacks may simply lock the system and display messages intended to coax the user into paying. Ransomware typically propagates as a Trojan, whose payload is disguised as a seemingly legitimate file.”
