Ransomware is a simple name for a complex collection of security threats.
Attacks can be short and brutal, or months in the making.
Because ransomware attacks are carried out by criminal gangs that evolve, cooperate, learn from each other, and adapt their tactics to it each victim, no two attacks are the same.
Because of its variability, the ransomware threat is sometimes easiest to understand by example: The attacks faced by your organisation will be unique, but its patterns will be familiar.
To help you understand the threat, and how to respond, Malwarebytes has curated a collection of case studies that illustrate the common patterns and principles of ransomware protection and recovery across a variety of industry sectors and business sizes.
