Ransomware is one of the most dangerous cyberthreats in the history of computing. In 2021 we have seen massive, disruptive attacks against schools, health care, food production, fuel supply, and financial and insurance organizations. Targeted attacks against a supply chain vendor like Kaseya can impact dozens, hundreds, even thousands of other businesses.
Barracuda’s Threat Intelligence infrastructure gathers threat data from hundreds of thousands of honeypots and data contributions from several types of organizations in more than 100 countries. This data collection has revealed specific attack patterns that are used in most ransomware attacks around the world. Barracuda CTO Fleming Shi discusses these patterns and how you can protect yourself at each point of the attack.
