The field of cybersecurity is growing rapidly, where both the scammers and attackers and the security specialists battle every day to outsmart the other one. Cybercriminals are coming up with advanced threats and types of scams regularly, and cybersecurity experts are innovating ways to prevent and combat these attacks. Malware attacks, phishing attacks, and ransomware attacks make the headlines regularly.
Ransomware attacks have been taking place for about two decades now and are accelerating faster today. In these ransomware attacks, scammers steal a companyâs data and then encrypt it so the company cannot access it any longer. Following this, the scammers blackmail the organization, and threaten them of releasing their private data unless a ransom is paid. According to a Forbes report, the average amount of reported ransomware transactions per month in 2021 was $102.3 million.
