Cyber Threat The Final 4

February 12, 2016

Has your data occurred to you like its been held for ransom?  Well it might be the on going problem of “Ransomeware” not only for individuals and small businesses, it can certainly also find its way onto compromised systems within an enterprise environment.

CryptoLocker was perhaps the most notorious instance of Ransomeware – a piece of malware that would lock the files on an infected computer and demand that the end user provide payment to the operator of the attack.

The Zombie Army aka Botnet use to distribute CryptoLocker was shut down, there are similar types of malware that persist. For businesses  who have a work force working off premise and  connecting to work networks, there exists the concern that not just personal systems , but systems holding a companies critical data could be locked by hackers on an infected system.

The past four posts I hope have been of value and to empower your organization to take action with one of  your most important creations you have built, your business!  Keep it real, keep it in action and keep it locked up!
