Enhance cybersecurity awareness and survivability for DoD, industry partners, and academia in the face of the ever-increasing threat of cyber attacks. Cybersecurity (CS) includes managing risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information and the systems and processes used for those purposes, including analog and physical form. CS includes information availability, identification and authentication, confidentiality, integrity, and non-repudiation as well as the economic considerations with respect to selection of CS techniques, CS processes, and industry trends.
How the most damaging ransomware evades IT security
Ransomware has been around for many years, yes it remains a common cyberthreat. New variations of ransomware are released every day and the job of security software is to detect and block them before they harm your computer and data. Proprietary packers of malicious code make it hard for security software to see what’s inside and what the code’s intentions are. Protection technologies then need to detect the actions of the malware once its inside the computer system. Most ransomware looks legitimate until it has achieved its purpose of encrypting your data and not letting you get it back until you pay the ransom demanded.
