Your organisation’s security strategy might be smart but chances are, cybercriminals are even smarter. Last year, 90% of all malware distributed via email was a type of ransomware and on some days, over 36 million ransomware emails were sent out. While some strains have already started to die out, the potential profits are still significant meaning ransomware won’t be going away any time soon. This report from Cyren looks at the rise of the ransomware phenomenon over the last year, helping your organisation to better understand this global cyberthreat.
