A partner's guide to ransomware

Ransomware is a growing issue and the damage can be substantial. A report from the Cyber Threat Alliance shows that according to the FBI, ransomware costs around the globe are predicted to exceed $5 billion in 2017. Our 2017 Data Vulnerability Report found that office workers ranked ransomware #2 behind hardware failure as the biggest threat to data loss within their organization.

Channel partners have an opportunity to help educate their clients on the dangers of ransomware and the best ways to prevent attacks. This guide, along with Part 2 of our Data Vulnerability Report, gives you advice on the ransomware threat -- both in terms of helping your clients prevent attacks from happening and ways to quickly restore data if an attack occurs.
