With more people working remotely in 2020 due to the global pandemic, ransomware attacks have increased 715% year over year. Ransomware—a type of malicious software or malware that prohibits you from accessing files, apps, and/or networks unless you pay a handsome ransom—is on the rise and getting more dangerous. The FBI reports that ransomware is one of the fastest growing threats. Cyber criminals can make thousands or even millions of dollars from one attack on an enterprise.
