Ransomware attacks have made international headlines by crippling computers and networks at major companies, institutions, and government agencies. These attacks have damaged infrastructure, harmed businesses, and cost billions of dollars in damage and lost productivity.
The threat is getting worse. The number of ransomware variants grew by 30-fold in 2017 and 2018, while new technologies are making it possible to build and deploy new undetectable strains of ransomware with the click of a mouse. The rate and variety of ransomware attacks are predicted to increase rapidly in the coming years, driven by the unprecedented level of profit these attacks are generating for cybercriminals.
