Abstract: During the first months of 2020, the evolution and importance of the resources proposed by the Digital Society has been showed for the implementation of the concept of "Business Continuity", for teleworking in organizations and also for the establishment of new forms of communication between people. However, simultaneously to this technological development, there has been given the emergence and evolution of a cyber attack known as Ransomware, lethal for victims and profitable for cybercriminals. The following Project shows, first of all, a classification with some examples of Ransomware attacks known since their inception and how they have finded different ways to expand to platforms, types of devices, infection strategies, functions, ways to obtain money and force the victim to make the ransom payment. Secondly, a layered Ransomware-type attack prevention strategy is proposed to reduce their chance of success. An effective attack can reach losses in thousands of Euros or Dollars, regardless of the negative impact on the image of the victim. Thirdly, some legal strategies and their impact are exposed, in the particular case of El Salvador, Latin America and Europe; giving a brief presentation of how the legal framework has matured in each context. Fourthly, 3 computer solutions from antivirus companies are presented in response to this problem. Finally, the exposition of Ransoware Ryuk, its vector of infection, functioning and evolution, is carried out.
