The State of Ransomware in the US: Report and Statistics 2019

 
 
 
2019 may well become known as “The Year of Ransomware”.  Whereas up to this point, some folks were aware of Ransomware and what is was capable of, this year we have seen a *huge* increase of successful attacks.  These have crippled multiple sectors of business including healthcare.
 
The biggest problem is that the bad guys unleashing this on the public are (at this point) much more proficient and knowledgeable about spreading the threat than the rest of us are at stopping it.  
 
Criminals have discovered this is an easy way to make pile of money and until the victims find ways to shut this down, the scourge will only continue.  For those of you that are not immersed deeply into the world of digital security, this is the number one problem we all face.
 
If you would like a fascinating read on the entire situation head on over to the blog of my favorite Anti-Virus Company Emsisoft and read their report.  This is *highly* recommended...
