RANSOMWARE ATTACKS ARE ON THE RISE: HOW PREPARED YOU?

Around 84% of organizations in the United States have reported phishing or ransomware incidents in the last 12 months. Ransomware attacks have become pervasive in 2021 and the average cost of breach stands at nearly $4.62 million for a ransomware attack. Furthermore, an all-time high of 78.4 million ransomware attacks was reported globally in June 2021. Some of the high-profile ransomware like CryptoLocker, WhiteRose, WannaCry, Petya, Darkside, etc, prove that ransomware is one of the top threats to national security.

Why is Ransomware Encryption Protection Significant to Your Organisation?

According to the recent advice given by Microsoft to the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, three steps can help prevent ransomware attacks-“prepare, limit, and prevent”. This involves preparing an effective recovery plan to enable recovery without paying, decreasing the scope of damage by securing privileged roles, and making it difficult for attackers to get in by incrementally removing risks. Conclusively, these imperative steps call for a proactive threat-hunting approach to keep destructive ransomware attackers at bay, which is exactly what Heimdal Security does.
