Overview

Ransomware-as-a-service and affiliate models have lowered the entry bar for cybercriminals. And monetary technologies like bitcoin make it virtually impossible for law enforcement authorities to track ransom payments. Traditional security approaches are not sufficient to thwart ransomware attacks. Advanced models using next-generation firewalls, layered security, and proactive threat intelligence are a requisite. This paper provides an overview of ransomware including what it is, how it works, and what you can do about it.
