RANSOMWARE – The Growing Data Kidnapping Danger

The┬áData Breach Investigation Report (DBIR) says there was a 13% rise in ransomware attacks year-over-year from 2021. This rise is a greater increase than the previous five years combined. Ransomware is a malware attack that encrypts a victim’s data so it can no longer be accessed and then demands a ransom.
