What Is “Ransomware”, And How Can I Avoid It?

With the number of cyberattacks increasing exponentially in the last several years, cyber security has become an issue of great importance. One type of attack, called “ransomware”, has become particularly popular. Ransomware is known for collecting an individual’s personal information/data and threatening to publish and/or destroy it unless a sum of money is paid to the hacker. I myself fell prey to ransomware in 2015, loosing over 6 years of pictures, documents, and downloads in the process. In addition to the increased popularity of ransomware, hackers are becoming more aggressive as well, boldly targeting large corporations and influential individuals. As the world becomes more technologically rooted, it is important now more than ever for cybersecurity to be promoted in order to avoid detrimental ransomware and other attacks like it, and secure a safer world for tomorrow.
