Ransomware is getting more sophisticated
Attackers are learning more and their techniques are evolving as they learn more. The primary methods of distributing ransomware remain spear-phishing and insecure Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) connections. Recent trends in ransomware attacks include:
- Focused, targeted attacks on specific organizations (and larger ransoms)
- Removing/Deleting backups before running ransomware
- Exposing data to the public if ransom is not paid
Managed Service Providers (MSPs) have become a primary target because attackers can use one entry point to gain access into multiple potential targets.
In 2019, affected organizations included:
state and municipal governments and agencies
universities, colleges and schools

Ransomware Attacks on the Rise
Attackers are also beginning to target MSPs for ransomware attacks. MSPs have been known to quickly pay the ransom to try and restore services quickly, otherwise they will lose their credibility with their clients (and their business). As more MSPs are attacked and pay the ransom, they are increasingly becoming a target themselves.
