Punishing the victim won't stop ransomware

By External Author on Apr 8, 2021 8:45:00 AM

Imagine, for a moment, that you own a small business -- say, a regional dairy farm producing milk, ice cream, yogurt, and other products. And, like so many companies in the food manufacturing sector, you get hit by ransomware. You can’t access any of the data you need to run your business -- so you don’t know which products to ship, where to ship them, what prices you’ve negotiated, who’s paid and who hasn’t… everything is locked up. And, the clock is ticking -- you can’t tolerate extended downtime or products will spoil and customers will defect to other vendors.

Ransomware Read Me First: Don't Get Scammed... Twice

By Editorial Team on Jan 11, 2021 8:45:00 AM

You were hit with ransomware. You panic. You search “ransomware response” or “ransomware repair” and among the top results is a link that reads “Recover Encrypted Files - Guaranteed.” Sounds like you found the solution! None of us wants to pay the ransomware operators. If there is a legitimate solution that avoids sending tens of thousands (if not millions) of dollars via cryptocurrency to threat actors overseas, it’s worth paying for.
