- Ransomware is rapidly shaping up to be the defining online security issue of our era. It’s a brutally simple idea, executed with increasing sophistication by criminal groups.
- The targets of the ransomware gangs have evolved, too. It’s not just about PCs anymore; these gangs want to go after the really irreplaceable business assets too, which means file servers, database services, virtual machines and cloud environments.
- They’ll also search out and encrypt any backups that organisations foolishly leave connected to the network.
