Being Held for Ransom: Safeguards Against Ransomware

SecurShred Events NEFCUVT

Ransomware is defined as “a type of malicious software designed to block access to a computer system until a sum of money is paid.”  Ransomware software can encrypt all your files which will prevent you from opening them or by locking the computer until a password entered, which you only get once you pay a sum of money (usually in an e-currency like Bitcoin) and there is no guarantee that you’ll ever get the password once you pay.
