As the name suggests, ransomware takes files hostage until a ransom is paid. The price is often tens of thousands of dollars.

What kind of cyber threats do smaller businesses face?
As more and more commerce is conducted online, criminals are taking to the web. Hackers are targeting small to medium sized businesses with viruses, malware and most recently, ransomware at an alarming rate. As implied by its name, ransomware takes an entities data and holds it hostage until a ransom is paid. The price is generally tens of thousands of dollars. According to a recent 60 Minutes special on the topic, “26% of cities and counties say they fend off an attack on their network every hour.” In the same program, it is stated that according to FBI’s Mike Chrisman, “In 2017, 1,700 successful ransomware attacks were reported.” Right here in Massachusetts, the Leominster school district was hit with a $10,000 attack in 2018 – and they paid. The financial burden of this attack could have been avoided had the school system properly backed up their files.
