Ransomware is a big threat to modern organizations of any size. Unfortunately, small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) may not have enough financial resources to fully protect themselves from attack. But this doesn’t mean that SMBs cannot do anything to secure their networks.
Ransomware is still a surging threat to businesses of all sizes — not even small enterprises are immune from the risk. However, by studying ransomware attacks on other organizations, you can develop good internet hygiene habits and robust data policies that effectively protect your business from ransomware operations.
Believe it or not, ransomware has been around since the 1980s — but it was only fairly recently that it made waves as a legitimate threat to modern businesses. Modern ransomware prevents users from accessing their system and/or their personal files, and accompanying the lockout is a demand for money.
