Ransomware is a type of malicious software that invades computer systems and encrypts key data. Attackers demand that victims pay a ransom in order to decrypt their data and return their systems to normal operating condition. If the ransom is paid, the attacker provides a decryption key to free up the encrypted data. If the ransom is not paid, the victim must find other ways to recover their data – if they can.

Ransomware attacks are difficult to protect against and extremely costly to recover from. Here are ten essential facts you need to know about ransomware today.
