5 Ransomware Threats to Know


These days, cybercriminals are organized and well-funded. Unlike a lone threat actor, ransomware groups will reinvest a portion of their profits into hiring and training talented cybercriminals, making them more dangerous to organizations. As ransomware tactics evolve, it's important for organizations to be up to date on current ransomware techniques.


Here are five ransomware threats to know: 


 Ransomware groups target known vulnerabilities in cloud software and applications. Sometimes they access the cloud through targeted attacks on individual devices or cloud accounts. 


 Compromising managed service providers enables cybercriminals to infiltrate multiple organizations in one attack. 


  According to the FBI, several ransomware groups have created code to stop critical infrastructure and industrial processes.


Compromising software supply chains allows cybercriminals to gain access to multiple victim organizations in one breach. 


Cybercriminals are increasingly attacking on weekends and holidays when there are fewer IT and support personnel working.
