Anyone with data stored on their computer or network is at risk of a ransomware attack.
This includes private citizens, government, law enforcement agencies, healthcare systems or other critical infrastructure entities. Ransomware is malicious software that hackers deploy on a computer to prevent users from accessing their computer or network until a ransom is paid. It can be spread through phishing emails or unknowingly clicking on on an infected website.
Recovery is often a difficult process that may require the services of a reputable data recovery specialist. It’s not always guaranteed that companies will recover their files after paying the ransom.
But you can recover from a Ransomware attack if companies have a strong backup and a plan to restore the framework. However, the best remedy is to prevent a ransomware attack by conducting a readiness assessment.
