Ransomware continues to be the bane of existence for most IT staff. These attacks have rapidly evolved, and are using multiple vectors to enter networks. The onslaught of DIY ransomware tools available for sale on the Dark Web continue to make this an asymmetrical cyberwar between IT/businesses and cyber-criminals. And now with ransomware-as-a-service proliferating on the Dark Web, any disgruntled employee, student, or hacker with malintent or run of the mill script kiddie can turn into a formidable foe who wants to lock your data for ransom. To combat ransomware attacks, prevention and protection methods must evolve to match these threats, and IT must take a multi-prong approach in protecting their networks and more importantly their data assets.
