Ransomware has quickly evolved from simply blocking users from gaining access to their files to encrypting files and even attacking servers. Cybercriminals are also becoming savvier when it comes to disguising attacks, making it harder for businesses to avoid them. A recent report from IBM security found that one in two business executives have experienced a ransomware attack, and 70 percent admitted to paying the ransom to regain access to their data.

As an MSP, it’s important to educate your customers about the dangers of ransomware and the steps they need to take to avoid an attack. Ransomware is a billion-dollar industry, and one attack could put your SMB customers out of business.

Take this short interactive quiz to test your knowledge, and then share the SMB version with your customers to educate them on the importance of safeguarding their business against this growing threat. After all, education is the best defense against ransomware.
