Ransomware is one of the hottest security topics of the year, with two major ransomware campaigns so far. Cisco has seen different forms of ransomware emerge, particularly leveraging and repurposing the same pieces of open-source code that was previously available for educational purposes, according to Artes. Cisco also is seeing a rise in Ransomware-as-a-Service and predicts a future trend around "destruction of a service", where instead of information being encrypted it is destroyed by the malware.
