Most, if not all, of today’s businesses are turning to technology to improve the productivity of their business processes. While such an undertaking provides opportunities to increase the bottom line, the risks of sophisticated ransomware attacks that come along with it should never be ignored. Cybercriminals are here to stay with new tactics and strategies to hostage highly significant business data. If not properly addressed, ransomware attacks can result in significant technical, financial, and reputational damages.

Now more than ever, organizations need to be proactive by implementing up-to-date cybersecurity approaches.
