Whitepaper: The Rise of Ransomware
Recommended approaches in managing ransomware key attack vectors
Now more than ever, ransomware vulnerabilities, threats, and attacks are rapidly increasing since the rise of the pandemic, targeting different types of industries, retail and service businesses, non-profit organizations, and even private individuals.
The three major ransomware vectors include stolen credentials, email delivery (phishing and social engineering), and vulnerability exploits with unauthorized access.
The recommended strategies to manage the three ransomware attack vectors include multi-factor authentication (MFA). PC and server encryption, and modern behavior-based endpoint security.
This paper identifies the top three ransomware attacks during the pandemic and the recommended solutions on how to reduce ransomware risk.
