what it is

Ransomware is a malware threat that can infect a device, blocking access to all or some of its contents (photos, videos, files, etc.) and then demanding a ransom to be paid to restore their availability.

how to prevent

  • Adopt Anti-Malware systems with dedicated ‘Anti-Ransomware’ modules
  • Using Firewalls with IPS ‘Intrusion Prevention System’ and Machine Learning systems against Ransomware
  • Structure backups that are not constantly online/on the same machine
