When Your Files Are Held For Randsom

We've had a lot of questions from our clients recently about how to handle ransomware like CryptoLocker and others. Practically speaking, there are only three different ways to be able to deal with it:

  • Restore your files from a backup
  • Let them go
  • Pay the fee to release them

If you don't have a backup and it's critical that you restore them, your only choice really is to pay the ransom. The question remains, should you? There really isn't a right answer to this question, but we'll be covering this topic in-depth in an upcoming article, so stay tuned!
