Businesses are premium ransomware targets as attacks spike in last year

The frequency of ransomware attacks has increased dramatically over the past year, with most of these costly attacks targeting businesses, according to a new study from Barracuda, a trusted partner and leading provider of cloud-enabled security solutions. Ransomware attacks see cybercriminals using malicious software, delivered as an email attachment or link, to infect the network and lock email, data, and other critical files until a ransom is paid. And according to Barracuda researchers, these attacks are becoming even more deadly as cybercriminals level up their tactics and attack patterns, and with it, their ransom payment demands. To safeguard against attacks, Barracuda urges businesses to do everything they can to prevent credentials loss, like training staff for email security awareness and implementing anti-phishing capabilities in email.
