It’s 9 a.m. on a Monday after a long weekend. You arrive at your downtown office prepared to tackle a brief for the new multinational corporation you are representing in their upcoming patent infringement case. You grab your coffee, say hello to your co-workers and sit down at your desk to begin. You enter your password and log in. You browse to the folder on your server or Document Management System where all the critical documents collected from your client detailing the “secret sauce” of their latest product are stored. To your horror, none of the files will open and there is a text file in the folder that you do not recognize called ryuk.txt. Congratulations, you are the victim of a ransomware attack.
