Ransomware and Cloud Based Services
As more businesses move to cloud based services the risk of widespread attacks which affect a number of businesses are expected to increase. This is particularly true when one business contracts with another business to host their files or practice management system remotely. While these services are often convenient, allowing access from any internet connected device, they come with security pitfalls, by requiring only an attack on the host’s servers to lock the files of a number of different companies all at once.
As explained in the MIT Technology Review ransomware has become popular with criminal hackers, and a big target in 2018 will be “cloud computing businesses, which house mountains of data for companies.”
Effects of Ransomware
Businesses who have files or services hosted by cloud based systems infected with Ransomware will likely lose the ability to access their files or will be unable to log into hosted services. This may lead to a drop in productivity and business revenues may be lost as a result. These effects have been reported in cases such as the recent Allscripts ransomware attack.
