Ransomware is when an attack happens in your business infrastructure. Cybercriminals encrypt your files and ask you to pay a ransom to get your files back. They generally hold the files for 48-72 hours until you pay the ransom. If you don’t, they throw away the key, and you lose everything. It is almost impossible to find out what kind of key they used to unlock the files. This is why you need a good backup and cybersecurity insurance.
