A question of readiness
Too many organizations believe that they have no choice but to pay ransom once an attacker gets hold of critical data. As a result, ransoms are being paid more often and the amounts required are growing rapidly. Ransom payments more than doubled in 2020, from an average $111,605 to $233,817.1
Evaluate your readiness for handling a ransomware attack by asking yourself the following:
- Do you have segmentation and other risk avoidance strategies in place?
- Are your backups on a modern and up-to-date data protection platform?
- Are your backups stored on systems protected from ransomware?
- Can you recover your entire environment (not just systems or files) in hours?
