Ransomware creates fear
Ransomware - avoid being tricked
The video clip is a 30 second excerpt from a cartoon video of 1:30 minute duration
The extent of ransomware attacks has exploded, and there is legitimate reason to fear them. Things can go terribly wrong if employees are not aware of the threat.
This little cartoon video tells – with a humourous twist – about how ransomware comes in and what can happen. And viewers are given clear directions: DO's and DON'Ts
A recent example is the world-wide WannaCry attack in spring 2017. It became expensive and in some cases catastrophic for those who were hit.
Ransomware is big business
By 2015, there were 3.6 million ransomware attacks worldwide. The figure rose in 2016 to 638 million. Employees are essential in the fight when cybercrime is to be limited. As malware is constantly being designed to better prevent antivirus and unnoticed through the system, the individual's judgment will be central.
Ransomware is out of control
This is due to the fact that ransomware works and generates significant revenues for the backlogs, says Jan Johannsen, Security Director at Check Point Denmark, in a press release.
The extent of ransomware has exploded – it's almost unimaginable. Companies are exposed to millions of attacks annually.
Definition of ransomware
A type of malware used to debug the owner of the infected device to pay ransom to access their own data again. The word is composed of the English words "ransom" (solvency) and "software" (program code).
