Could your business survive a cryptor: a practical guide

We’re pleased to present a new practical guide from Kaspersky Lab on an extremely hot topic, which is ransomware, aka cryptors.


Facing a cryptor infestation in the corporate network is a pure nightmare for IT staff and the entire company. A slippery piece of software may encrypt all of the data on the firm’s computers into an unreadable form and the data can only be decrypted by using the necessary decryption key – owned by the criminal who wants money for it, and sometimes very serious money…

Reading this guide you will learn:

  1. What are the cryptors and what are the infection’s consequences – in detail;
  2. What tools and actions are necessary to protect your data;
  3. Why is it necessary to educate your employees and how to do it;

…And other things.
