You start your computer as usual, but something is different today. Programmes that you need for your daily work suddenly do no longer work. Documents you were working on yesterday are encrypted today and you have no access to your emails. You are slowly becoming aware that you are the victim of a hacker attack and that the next few weeks will be sheer horror for you. You are wondering whether you have a backup of the current data and how long it will take until the systems are completely reset…
In short – your business comes to a complete standstill from one day to another and you have no idea when you will be able to receive customer orders or send invoices again. You are not even able to tell at the moment which orders are currently processed and what has to be delivered by when.
After the first computer is infected, the ransomware continues to spread independently in the network and infects the entire company in a very short time.
