#2 - The Ransomware Show (2017)

November 14, 2017

This is one of those subjects that has struck everyone from the techno security guru to the average person who might simply be trying to do their job.  Ransomware brands such as Goldeneye, Petya (and its counterpart NotPetya), Cryptolocker, CryptoWall, Locky, WannaCry and very recently, Bad Rabbit (to name only a few) have been making headlines across the globe.

I’ll start by taking a quick step back and just define Ransomware before I discuss how it tricks us into letting it in the door. I'll then take you through the stages of it's existence and finally what we can do to be better in the face of quickly advancing and mutating Ransomware attacks.

2017 was the year of the Ransomware... or is it?  2018 is just around the corner so only time will tell.
