Thumb original logrhythm next gen ransomware 2017.09.13

Ransomware is not a new type of threat: it’s been around in its current form for over a decade.

But just because organisations are becoming more accustomed to dealing with ransomware, it doesn’t mean they can afford to take it any less seriously. Ransomware groups are now using a number of new strategies to catch organisations out.
