The Ransomware Epidemic: Tips for Beating the Bad Guys


By Special Guest
9/20/2016
Ransomware has become a global IT epidemic. In just the first quarter of 2016, ransomware victims paid out as much as $209M to cyber-criminals according to the FBI. This outrageous number, up from $24M in 2015, represents a serious assault on the IT world. While these attacks are not brand new - the first known ransomware occurrence was in 1989 and the ransom ask was for $189 ($350 inflation-adjusted) - the prevalence and financial demands have increased in a big way.
