Ransomware is on the rise, with cybercriminals regularly developing new variants of the malware, targeting more businesses, and demanding larger payments to “restore” user data. With the emergence of ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS), even criminals with minimal technical skill can launch devastating attacks against businesses and organizations. According to the FBI, Ransomware payments have dramatically increased to around $1 billion in 2016, compared to just $24 million in 2015.
