I just found this excellent video on YouTube that I thought I would share with you. It explains very well what Ransom-Ware actually does and how serious a threat it is.
The video was published September 2016 but has never been more relevant than today.
In the past year I have noticed that major vendors like Cisco, Kaspersky etc. are constantly focusing their seminars and webinars on this insidious threat. I take this to highlight the serious nature of this threat an so should you.
If you are not taking your IT Security seriously it is only a matter of time before you wish that you had done so.
