5 Ransomware Threats to Know

These days, cybercriminals are organized and well-funded. Unlike a lone threat actor, ransomware groups will invest into hiring and training talented cybercriminals, making them more dangerous to organizations. As tactics evolve, it’s important for your team to be current on ransomware techniques.

Here are five ransomware threats to know:

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

2. Targeting Managed Service Providers
Compromising managed service providers enables cybercriminals to infiltrate multiple organizations in one attack.

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

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

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