Ransomware Takes on a More Targeted Approach

Ransomware attacks continue to rise, while companies are left scrambling to add technical safeguards, policy protection, and educate employees.

The education provided to our clients, can make the difference between recovering a system in hours, versus days, says Brad Mendonsa, CEO of Clare Computer Solutions.

(San Ramon, CA) Like most cyber-threats, ransomware is evolving in sophistication, and one of the latest techniques, known as “spear phishing” is on the rise. Clare Computer Solutions (CCS) helps companies educate employees on safeguards against attacks.
 
Until recently, ransomware has launched through emails sent indiscriminately, as spam. Instead of the sales-oriented emails telling you the most recent sale, or “items you may be interested in.” The latest trend for ransomware has become a more targeted approach, with emails spoofed as though trusted individuals from your address book were the sender (often a principal within the company).
 
The most common and successful “spear phishing” scams are dressed up as business proposals, UPS tracking emails, or product quotes. These emails contain attachments or links which contain a series of protocols to initiate and deliver the malware directly to your system.
 
With ransomware growing at an alarming rate, the need for multi-layered defense has quickly become a must-have for business networks. These defense packages consist of technical tools, policy-level controls, employee education and plans for rapid recovery - in case of infections.
 
“The education provided to our clients, can make the difference between recovering a system in hours, versus days,” says Brad Mendonsa, CEO of Clare Computer Solutions.
 
Standing behind their proactive approach to IT, Clare Computer Solutions offers ransomware prevention training to better educate network users on technology that detects and initiates post-infection recovery, and spots suspicious emails.
