Overview

Over $325 million was extorted from victims of ransomware attacks in the last year, a figure which is only expected to grow as it gains popularity. Ransomware attacks are the preferred means of extortion for most cybercriminals due to the potential for high cost rewards and the ease with which they can bypass traditional anti-virus solutions. This white paper looks at research by CyberArk into ransomware and highlights which potential mitigation strategies could be most effective for combating it.
