Ransomware as a Service (RaaS) and how to avoid it

RaaS - Ransomware as a Service

Today’s post covers Ransomware as a Service (RaaS). This malicious practice involves illegally taking hold of an organization’s precious information. When this happens, it often leads to a hacker having access to private records, user information, and more. Even worse, the perpetrator then holds this information for ransom, using malware to demand payment for release.

This is unfortunate, as RaaS is often avoidable. It can be highly disruptive and costly to good organizations. Further, it can lead to extensive downtime and other challenges. However, through best practices and the right software providers (such as your eRA software vendor), RaaS is much less of a concern.
