Ransomware is devastating. When critical files are infected and encrypted, a company may be forced to shut down – perhaps permanently.
But ransomware can attack anyone – including decent, law-abiding citizens like you. An infection can be devastating, with precious memories and photographs along with important digital paperwork potentially lost forever.
Unfortunately, ransomware is rapidly becoming the weapon of choice for cybercriminals. Desperate people will pay ransoms quickly to regain access to their files – easy money for hackers. Which is why we are seeing more of these malware attacks – and why you need to know how to deal with an infection before you become a victim.
