Understanding Ransomware: Impact, Evolution and Defensive Strategies
This whitepaper, produced by our Cyber Defence Operations team, is about the understanding of ransomware. It examines the impact, evolution and defensive strategies that can be employed by organisations.
It is primarily focused on Microsoft Windows due to the historic prevalence and devastating impact on ransomware on this platform, but it also focuses on mobile devices and Apple Mac OS X.
The paper will be useful to organisations that wish to understand what the problem is and what they can reasonably do about it through a mixture of policy and procedure, user education and technical mitigations.
