What can send an organisation into chaos within a matter of seconds?

Malware and ransomware are two threats that are often in the limelight and don't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. 

They are constant and malicious and according to Webroot, there are new trends surrounding these threats being created all the time.

Most recently, the threat intelligence company has uncovered the prevalence of a trend dubbed 'polymorphism'.

These threats are generated by attackers in ways that make each instance unique.
