The Check Point and Europol report also gives detailed, practical advice for organizations and individuals on preventing ransomware from infecting their machines, and best-practice tips on how to respond to and recover from a ransomware attack.
Oded Gonda, VP Technology & Innovation at Check Point said: “The new report gives both businesses and individuals a clear, concise guide to the fast-evolving ransomware threat and how they can protect themselves against it. Closer cooperation between security companies and international law enforcement will be critical in fighting back against ransomware and helping to reduce the impact of large-scale campaigns, which is why we are working closely with Europol to spread awareness of the growing ransomware threat”.
