2017 – Year of the Ransomware; What Does 2018 Hold?

2017 has been dubbed The Year of Ransomware by security companies and tech enthusiasts alike. In 2016, Ransomware creators earned an estimated $400,000, and in 2017 they stepped it up by raking in almost $6.5 million. Extortion via ransomware has increased exponentially. Due to the massive increase in ransomware’s popularity, companies are preparing for an increase in attacks in 2018, but businesses are increasing security protections using services like Web Filtering and implementing business continuity through Back-up & Disaster Recovery methods.
