Ransomware threats against companies, authorities andmunicipalities (English)
Abstract [sv]

Ransomware har ökat de senaste åren, vilket har orsakat många företag förödande konsekvenser. Incidenter med Ransomware kan allvarligt påverka affärsprocesser och lämna företagen utan data som behövs för att driva och leverera verksamhetskritiska tjänster.

Detta examensarbete grundas på att hur prioriteras hotet med Ransomware hos företag, myndigheter och kommuner. Efter åratals på media om Ransomware attacker som har skett mot svenska företag och myndigheter så undersöks i denna uppsats om hur väl förberedda och medvetna är företag och myndigheter om Ransomware attacker, allt från om attack har skett, hur de upplever det och vilka lösningar de har använt för att lösa det.

Utifrån de litteraturstudie och undersökningar som vi har genomfört om Ransomware-attacker samt i kombination med intervjustudien så kan slutsats dras om att olika aktörer både inom privata sektor och den offentliga så finns det olika syn och upplevelser om en ökad hotbild. Men att både offentliga och privata sektorn har planer, rutiner och strategier mot Ransomware-attacker

Abstract [en]

Ransomware has increased in recent years, which has caused many companies devastating consequences. Incidents with ransomware can seriously affect business processes and leave companies without the data needed to run and deliver mission-critical services.

This thesis is based on how to prioritize the threat of Ransomware in companies, authorities and municipalities. After years in the media about Ransomware attacks that have taken place against Swedish companies and authorities, this essay examines how well prepared and aware companies and authorities are about Ransomware attacks, everything from whether an attack has taken place, how they experience it and what solutions they have used to solve it.

Based on the literature study and investigation we have conducted about Ransomware attacks and in combination with the interview study, conclusions can be drawn that with various organizations in both the private and the public sector, there are different views and experiences about an increased threat. But both the public and private sectors have plans, routines and strategies against Ransomware-attacks.
