Too Long; Didn't Read

Ransomware is among the fearest cyberattacks in the community, putting critical infrastructures at risk. The last peak of attention on this issue was in 2017, when the infamous WannaCry malware shattered companies and organizations. But comparing what we are facing now with 2017, we saw a massive leap in the business model and the malware themselves. The average ransom payment in the first three months of 2021 was USD220,298 — **a significant rise from USD154,108 in the last quarter of 2020.
