11Paths Talks: The war against Ransomware
For some years now, companies and individuals have been victims of a type of attack that is especially virulent and lucrative for those who perpetrate it. This attack is named Ransomware after the union of two other words: “ransom”, which is a price paid for a rescue, and “ware”, which refers to software. This type of malicious software aims to seize the files that a company or individual has in their computer systems, preventing access to them by encrypting them and by requesting an economic amount in exchange for their recovery -usually the means of payment are Bitcoins.
In this webinar we talked about their origins and the evolution they have undergone before reaching the current versions, including curious cases and some research done by our specialists, as well as the mechanisms we have in order to avoid being the victims of this type of attack.
