Every week, more than 1,200 organizations worldwide fall victim to a ransomware attack, and all enterprises without exceptions are at risk. The average weekly number of ransomware attacks has increased by 93% over the past 12 months. The damage caused by ransomware will reach approximately $20 billion this year, a 57-fold increase from 2015. By 2031, the cost of ransomware incidents could even surpass the hard-to-believe figure of $265 billion. Cybercriminals are constantly refining their techniques to increase pressure to pay. Some of the steps to be followed while under a ransomware attack are: Isolate compromised systems, beware of backups, not reboot or system maintenance, identify the type of ransomware.
