The web server attacks this week are examples of advanced approaches used by criminals to compromise the integrity of web-based resources. IT professionals may be responsible for understanding how these attacks work, but the rest of the people in the organization who use information technology have neither the time nor the training to investigate these technical details. However, every stakeholder in the information technology services of an organization should be able to identify what is at risk to certain kinds of cyber-attacks.
In this assignment you will have an opportunity to review a published article on Ransomware – a data security attack that is current and becoming more common.
