Ransomware is a type of malware designed to encrypt files on a device until a ransom, typically in cryptocurrency, is paid to decrypt the files. Some ransomware variants will also try to spread to other machines on the network and, in some cases, victims’ data might be exfiltrated.

Ransom payments are strongly discouraged. Payments do not guarantee that the data will be decrypted, or that your data will not be published by the threat actors. It also encourages threat actors to continue their criminal activities and target more victims. Threat actors may also see your organisation as a soft target and may strike again in the future.
