  • FINANCIAL LOSSES
  • REPUTATION DAMAGE
  • PERSONAL IMPACT

LOST DATA & RANSOMWARE
Cyber criminals are running a business, and their goal is to make a profit out of manipulating their unsuspecting victims. 

Many phishing attacks aim to infect your computer or network with ransomware which locks your computer files and demands a payment to unlock them. The worst part? Even when paid their asking price, criminals have been known to delete the data anyway.

Note: This was a simulated phishing attack and any references to a company and their logo or trademark are for educational purposes only. Phishing emails are in no way associated with the company mentioned in the email.
