What does DHS think about ransomware?

July 29, 2021

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.

How vital is ransomware to the operation of the country? Alejandro Mayorkas, US Secretary of Homeland Security, announced a few weeks ago that DHS is making ransomware prevention their top priority. Ransomware can affect everybody, small to medium to large scale businesses. There are ways to prevent it and protect your business. To know more about how to do that, give us a call.
