How does ransomware get into the network?

There are three common ways ransomware attacks happen:

1. Open RDP ports: Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is an access portal that allows a user or administrator to connect to your computer from another location. 

2. Phishing emails: emails containing malware or malicious links that install a ransomware program on the computer when clicked

3. Exploit kits: advanced malware tool that allows cyber criminals to target victims through out of date security gaps in well-known software and hardware from popular technology manufacturers
