Fighting Ransomware Attacks
Cyber-attacks have become an international concern, as breaches in data security and sabotage are causing increasing damage to individuals, companies, and government. The notable attacks reported earlier in the year involved malicious software, or ransomware, that inscribed itself on around 300,000 computers and affected people in over 150 countries[i]. Unluckily, we knew many companies that fell victim to the malware attack waves, which compromised data and threatened to perpetually block access to data unless ransom was paid. We saw how many were compelled to adopt strict cyber security measures to curb the cyber threats.
