How to detect ransomware
Ransomware is a form of malware that, when activated, encrypts or locks all the files on a computer or network. The cybercriminal will then demand a ransom to restore access to the files. The more critical the frozen information is to a company, the more expensive and devastating the damage can become. Some ransomware can even seize files stored in the cloud.
The best ransomware detection is education. It’s critical that your staff consistently follows best practices for replying to emails, browsing the internet, clicking on hyperlinks and much more. Cybercriminals use sophisticated methods to trick unknowing victims into inadvertently downloading ransomware by accidentally clicking on corrupt links or visiting criminal websites. M&T Bank can help you and your staff learn to spot the telltale signs that can alert you to ransomware threats.
