Ransomware is one of the fastest-growing cyber-security threats facing organizations and individuals today. Attackers are holding everything from government records to health care equipment and even the keys to entire transit systems for ransom. According to new data from IBM, victims are paying up.
More than half of the business executives that responded to the survey, titled “Ransomware: How Consumers and Businesses Value Their Data,” said they had faced ransomware attacks. Seventy percent of those businesses paid the attackers, often more than $10,000. To help security teams fend off these attacks, Resilient launched the first ever Dynamic Playbook for ransomware attacks.
