Conti Ransomware 

Conti is a sophisticated ransomware variant that is generally human-operated.  Conti uses the AES-256 encryption key to encrypt data.  The encryption is fast because it utilizes up to 32 concurrent threads.  Many companies who have been hacked pay the ransom because this is a two-pronged attack.  First, they encrypt your data, and then they steal data and threaten to publish it online.  There are some steps that we recommend to decrease the effectiveness of this attack.  Remember, defense is done in layers.  Contact us to get these items set up on your network before an attack occurs.
