Ransomware Checklist

Defend your IT Infrastructure Against Ransomware with our FREE Ransomware Defence Checklist

What Is Ransomware?

Ransomware is malicious software (malware) used in a cyberattack to encrypt the victim’s data with an encryption key that is known only to the attacker, thereby rendering the data unusable until a ransom payment is made by the victim.


Ransom amounts are typically high, but usually not exorbitant, to get victims to simply pay the ransom as quickly as possible, instead of contacting law enforcement and potentially incurring far greater costs due to the loss of their data and negative publicity.


Ransomware is commonly delivered through exploit kits, waterhole attacks (in which one or more websites that an organization frequently visits is infected with malware), malvertising (malicious advertising), or email phishing campaigns.


Ransomware typically identifies user files and data through some sort of an embedded file extension list. Files that match one of the listed file extensions are then encrypted. The ransomware then typically leaves instructions for the victim on how to pay the ransom.
