The ransomware threat isn’t showing any signs of diminishing or fading away as yet. Its victims include large enterprises, medium companies and small businesses. According to the Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology, (ICIT), 2016-2017 are expected to be years that Ransomware wreaks havoc to American companies. Ransomware threats in 2015 were up 165% over the previous year according to a recent study by professors at Northeastern University.
Ransomware is responsible for 406,887 attempted infections and accounts for a total of approximately $325 million in damages, according to a November, 2015 report by the Cyber Threat Alliance. Ransomware can attack any business or industry with a simple mouse click on an advertisement, an email click — or even visiting a webpage by accident. The worst part is that once it penetrates your business, you’re at the mercy of the extortionists. The research shows that criminals don’t always honor their promise to release your company’s data even if you do pay. It is critical to learn how to educate your customers on the best way to protect data assets and to understand which companies are most vulnerable and why.
