Forgotten, but not gone: Ransomware

It hasn’t been that long since the term Ransomware seemed like it was the headline in nearly every newspaper.  As industry focus shifted to the eradication of this ever emerging threat, the number and frequency of attacks began to drop. As recently as March of 2019, many online news articles seemed to indicate ransomware attacks had been on a sharp decline.  It appears that was just wishful thinking. When McAfee Labs released their 1st quarter threat report, it indicated a 118% RISE in ransomware attacks for Q1 2019.
