What is Ransomware?
Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts data on a computer or network into an unreadable format until a sum of money, or ransom, is paid.
How does Ransomware Work?
When run, ransomware will scan the file storage disk for files to encrypt – typically documents, spreadsheets, etc. The files are encrypted with a key that only the attackers know, thus preventing your access to the files. Then, threat actors hold you files hostage, demanding a ransom to be paid for you to get your access back.
