Ransomware online training

Ransomware is a type of malicious software (malware) that locks up computers, devices, and data to make them inaccessible until a sum of money is paid to cyber thieves.

It can lock up individual files and folders or it can lock up your entire device. It can also spread to attached devices. Cyberthieves may infect one device and move through the network to other devices and accounts.

Learn more about what to do to secure your data and devices from the threat of ransomware in our new online training.
