Hello

 

I am looking for some sources of information in order to write an email( a sort of guide) to send for the personnel of the company I am working for. The goals is to introduce them with this kind of malware,inform them about the threats which are posed by ransomware, the ways to prevent them and hopefully increase the awareness and knowledge of the people.As you know, It has to be expressed with a simple language so that ordinary people( without much or any knowledge about IT) can realize that and act upon that.

 

I would really appreciate that if someone introduced me to one or some useful links so I can write my text. I also plan to repeat the process every three weeks and add extra information to further educate and warn the people.

 

Thanks in advance

Ransomware/Crypto malware has been around since 2012. The original CryptoLocker appeared in the beginning of September 2013 and received a lot of media attention because it demonstrated how these infections could generate a large amount of revenue for their creators.

Information about ransomware malware can be found in these articles:

A repository listing of all Bleeping Computer Crypto malware Information and ransomware topics can be found in this index.
