Most ransomware victims would pay up if attacked again

    August 4, 2022

    Ransomware is a terrifying crime – and most businesses aren’t aware of it.

    It’s where cyber criminals break into your network, encrypt your data, and won’t give it back until you pay a ransom fee.

    In some attacks, they secretly spend weeks in your network changing settings. So, it’s nearly impossible to kick them out or recover data once the attack has started.

    Official advice says never pay a ransom fee. There’s no guarantee that you’ll get your data back, and you may be targeted again in the future.

    However, a new survey’s been done of business leaders who’ve already been attacked.

    Ninety-seven percent say if they were attacked again, they’d pay the ransom to minimize the damage. A third would pay it instantly.

    What does that tell you about how badly it affects businesses?

    The only way to protect – is to prepare.

    This is what we do. We help businesses increase cyber security to reduce their chances of being affected. Let’s talk.
