Ransomware Tools, Attacks Become More Business-Focused

Ransomware eclipsed most other cyberthreats in 2017 and has emerged as one of the most pressing security concerns for organizations today.

Highlighting the trend are attacks such as the recent attack on Hancock Health of Greenfield, Indiana, which resulted in the hospital paying $55,000 in bitcoins to recover data that had been encrypted in a ransomware attack.
