“Ransomware is malware that locks your computer and mobile devices or encrypts your electronic files. When this happens, you can’t get to the data unless you pay a ransom. However, this is not guaranteed and you should never pay!” – NoMoreRansome.org
I recently saw @Raj_Samani from McAfee speak at RSA about the NoMoreRansom project (https://www.nomoreransom.org). I had heard a little about this initiative when it launched but never truly understand the function or the goal.
