Securiti Launches Industry’s First Solution To Automate Compliance



Ransomware refers to a type of malicious software (malware) designed to encrypt a victim’s data and demand a ransom payment in exchange for a decryption key. When a computer or network is infected with ransomware, the attacker typically displays a ransom note on the victim’s screen, explaining the demand for payment. Victims are often given a deadline to make the payment, after which the decryption key may be destroyed. Ransomware attacks can have severe consequences, as they can result in data loss, financial losses, and operational disruptions. It’s important to note that paying the ransom is not recommended, as it does not guarantee that the attacker will provide the decryption key or that the data will be restored.
