Government report reveals reality of ransomware risk

20 Mar 2017

"A report from the National Crime Agency and National Cyber Security Centre this week revealed the growing impact of ransomware attacks directed at businesses and households."

BLM's Tim Smith has spoken to CIR Magazine about the rapid increase in ransomware attacks and why attackers are branching out on their list of targets to now include the consumer as well as businesses, as consumer devices are often less secure and easier to hack. Tim also highlights why fraudsters are now also taking advantage.
