Industry Highlight: Ransomware

Dark web monitoring

In January 2021 the U.S. Government Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) announced a program to encourage public and private sector organizations to implement best practices to mitigate cybersecurity risk and threats. The government’s effort was in response to the exponential increase in ransomware attacks. ¬†Research from BitDefenders Mid-Year Threat Landscape report shows a 715% increase in Ransomware in 2020

Ransomware, the act of taking control of an individual or organization’s systems and demanding payment to release that control, starts with compromised credentials. ¬†Organizations and their employees are responsible for ensuring the security of these systems by protecting utilizing good hygiene when operating online. ¬†But, what can the organization do to address these issues?
