Ransomware Basics

According to Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency, Ransomware is an ever-evolving form of malware designed to encrypt files on a device, rendering any files and the systems that rely on them unusable. Malicious actors then demand ransom in exchange for decryption. The most recent strains of ransomware steal data before decrypting, the technique called double-extortion. Ransomware actors often target and threaten to sell or leak exfiltrated data or authentication information if the ransom is not paid.

In recent years, ransomware incidents have become increasingly prevalent among the Nation’s state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) government entities and critical infrastructure organizations.
