Have Ransomware or a Security Breach?


This is an all-to-common scenario. An employee of company XYZ arrives to work early one morning. They brew a cup of coffee, settle into their desk, and bump the mouse attached to their computer. The monitor comes to life and greets them with a terrifying message. Now stunned by what they see on the monitor, their heart skips a beat.

What’s the difference between a Ransomware Attack and a Security Breach?

Another key point, ransomware attacks will encrypt/lock your programs and data files, but your data is usually not exposed. So, you may have nothing to worry about in the long run. One the other hand, getting your information back and systems operational again is another issue. In addition, if the ransomware attack is against a company whose services you use, you might be inconvenienced while they are out of commission.

If the hack was a security or data breach, find out if your information has been compromised. Overall, we can assist you by examining your logs to determine the extent of the breach. Also, you may have been notified that your personal data was exposed. U.S. laws require companies to disclose this information if your data has fallen into the hands of bad actors.
