Book Description

More and more cyber threats keep emerging every day, affecting organizations across the board, targeting the entire spectrum of the Internet. Digital--or cyber--extortion so far has come across as the most serious of such threats as it seeks to profit from criminal activity, akin to blackmail. Such extortion has been rising exponentially in the digital age and has become a huge illegal money-making business, affecting users and organizations ranging from small businesses to large enterprises.

This is an insightful study spelling out in detail the ways and means employed by cyber criminals in targeting various devices and the multiple dangers such malicious activity embodies.

Here will be found an overview of methods employed to impact and infect computers, smartphones, servers, and the IoT for cyber extortion. Then, it will move on to specific subjects in more detail, covering attacks such as DDoS-based extortion, cryptoviruses, and ransomware. You will learn how to prevent such attacks and eliminate them if you are compromised. This book will help you become a pro at securing your data and preventing your organization from paying a hefty ransom.
