Why ransomware is dangerous?
A ransomware attack is a dangerous cyber threat for multiple reasons:
- Ransomware can deny user access to critical and confidential data
- Ransomware can make medical information such as medication schedules, test results, and patient health records inaccessible, endangering lives.
- Ransomware attacks can inhibit the functioning of facilities that provide essential resources like water, power and electricity
- Encrypted or locked files might include personal files like priceless photos
Proactively implementing cyber security measures to help prevent ransomware is crucial. Additionally, creating an incident response plan can prepare organizations for immediate response and aid successful remediation efforts when an attack occurs.
