After the recent round of ransomware attacks of wanna-cry, the business world got a serious wake-up call, with many having no strategy for these sort of attacks. However, by using experiential planning, you can ride out the storm with no issues.
What is a ransomware?
This is a type of malicious software from crypto-virology that involves threats to publish classified information or initiate perpetual blockage to such data on condition that the ransom sought is not paid. Ransomware usage by cybercriminals has been on the rise as more government agencies and private firms continue adopting e-data storage systems. Cyber criminals seek to kidnap sensitive data or use lock screen attacks as the means through which they can compel their victims into paying the ransom they ask. In the past decade, many firms and organizations have been victims of ransomware leading to increased awareness of the need to take steps that will ensure they are safe. As more firms adopt the use of big data, there is anticipation that more cases of ransomware are likely to be on the rise.

With this advancement comes a great deal of brand new and unexplored technology. This new technology has many applications that can help us in our lives and make some of the problems we have much easier to find solutions to. It is hard to go through modern life and not experience the effect that computers have on our well-being and quality of life.
