Understanding how ransomware infects a device and spreads across a network is crucial to ensuring that your organization does not become the next victim of an attack. As recent trends have shown, the danger of losing access to your data, devices and services is compounded by threat actors that are now exfiltrating data and threatening to leak it on public sites if victims don’t pay up.

Post infection, ransomware can spread to other machines or encrypt shared files in the organization’s network. In some cases, it can spread across organizational boundaries to infect supply chains, customers, and other organizations. The real answer to ransomware lies in prevention rather than cure. So just how does this devastating malware commonly infect devices?
