Check for available decryption tools

One of the biggest security problems and forms of cybercrime  today is ransomware .This form of malware encrypts files so that they cannot be accessed without a decryption key. The attackers then ask for payments in cryptocurrency to provide targets with the decryption key, usually within a short time frame to put more pressure on the targets. 

In case you are a target of ransomware, general advice is not to pay, as there is no guarantee you will indeed receive the correct decryption key. Payments also encourage further cybercrime attempts. You can try to find a decryption tool based on the type of ransomware. For example, No More Ransom is an initiative which provides citizens with free decryption tools for many forms of ransomware.
