Protect your business from ransomware
2021 marks a record-breaking number of data breaches across the globe. By just 30th September 2021, the total number of data breach events had already increased by a shocking 17% over the entirety of 2020*, many of which were the result of ransomware.
Ransomware – a form of malware that threatens to expose sensitive information or block access unless a ransom is paid – is becoming an increasingly significant threat, with the world record for highest amount demanded from a business via ransomware reaching a jaw-dropping $40 million in 2021**. And, worryingly, it’s become much easier than you’d think to accidentally let this dangerous malware into your company, especially when malicious emails have increased by a phenomenal 600% due Covid-19***.
The rising popularity of cryptocurrency has also made it far easier for cybercriminals to demand payment through malware, making it simpler for the victim to pay out and much more difficult to trace back to the perpetrator.
Ransomware is also incredibly quick to spread. According to Microsoft, almost 97% of the malware can take less than 4 hours to reach its target, the quickest of which being just 45 minutes!
