One of the most feared malicious software in the recent years is ransomware, and for this reason. It targets individuals and large companies. It encrypts your data and asks for money to decrypt it. But in most cases, you don’t get access to your data even if you pay.
The result is devastating: in a worst-case scenario you lose data, production and business stops, you lose money, and eventually your job. Even of you have backups, downtime is where the money goes down the drain.
