In March 2016, several Arvig employees received an email that looked a lot like any other message. It came from what looked to be a legitimate address from a familiar sender. But this email was different: It contained LOCKY ransomware. After a malicious attachment began attacking computers and encrypting files, Arvig’s IT team responded with a multi-layered defense that stopped the ransomware and recovered users’ data. Lean more in this case study, including:
- How LOCKY ransomware was discovered, contained and kept from spreading.
- How Arvig technicians responded to the attack.
- What Arvig learned from the experience.
