Ransomware 2020


Here at DTS InfoTech, the reason we’ve posted this video about Ransomware in 2020, is because this threat has reached the crisis stage. Plus, it’s under-reported.

If you’re new to Ransomware, in this short two-minute video, we’ve provided a simple four-layered approach to protect your business against a Ransomware attack.

Ransomware is a global crisis and a dreary subject.

According to Christopher Krebs, director of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), it’s not exaggerating to say we are in the midst of a national/global crisis with Ransomware. CISA is responsible for protecting the Nation’s critical infrastructure from physical and cyber threats.

Ransomware is not going away. This scourge is growing.

Additionally, DTS has a separate section here on our website dedicated to Ransomware. We have fourteen blog posts and counting. You should check it out for more information.

Our posts date back to January of 2014, but much has changed, so we’re updating our information to reflect this change.

From the beginning. What is Ransomware?

  • Ransomware is defined as a term for the many variations of malware that infect computer systems, typically by social engineering schemes.
  • Malicious software that locks your files and demands payment to access them.
  • A cryptovirology attack encrypts critical files and systems and renders them inaccessible to the owner.
  • Ransomware sometimes marks the files for permanent deletion or publication on the internet. The perpetrators then demand a payment (usually in semi-anonymous cryptocurrency like Bitcoin) for the private key required to decrypt and access the files.
  • Infamous ransomware examples include CryptoLocker, CryptoWall, Locky, Cerber, KeyRanger, SamSam, TeslaCrypt, TorrentLocker, and Reveton.

The question is, who will protect you and your business against Ransomware?
