Ransomware: Identify, Protect, Detect, Recover

Ransomware is a type of malware that limits users from accessing their system, while demanding a ransom payment. Victims are at risk of temporary and permanent data loss. In 2020 the average payment following a ransomware attack rocketed up 171% to $312,493 and the highest ransom demanded was a whopping $30 million.*
