Companies who conduct at least part of the business online need to have the right cyber security risk management to protect their intellectual property, data, documents, and other sensitive items from malicious software. Without the proper cyber security risk management, your business may be vulnerable to ransomware. Ransomware is a type of malware that can steal any information that has been stored on a computer, and hold it for ransom, sell the information to a third-party, or publish it. To further complicate the crime, the person holding your information for ransom will often ask to be paid in hard to trace cryptocurrency.
There are several different types of ransomware and the solutions for each respective type. Despite the danger of ransomware, Hi-Tek data has the cyber security risk management technology and expertise to protect you from malware and ransomware.
Why You Need Cyber Security Risk Management
Lockers will completely block you out of your computer system. When a locker has attacked your computer system, you will no longer be able to use any computers in that system. In a lot of cases, the locker will display a set of demands that the victim must follow in order to have the computer system unlocked.
Ransomware as a Service
This type of cyber security threat is concerned with professional hackers who can either design, distribute, or use malicious software to attack a business and get paid for their illegal services.
Scareware is a malware that aims to fool the person on the computer into thinking that the computer has detected a virus or some other issue with it, which then allows for the malware to infect the computer system. The computer could be locked out or it could be overwhelmed with alerts and pop-ups. To fix the issue, the person will have to pay money to the bad actor.
Encryption is a very common form of cyber security, which entails the malware infecting the computer and encrypting all the files on it. The malware will ask that the person pay over money to get the encryption key.
