As if we needed one more thing to worry about given the uncertainty of it all during the global pandemic, cybersecurity threats have been on a dramatic rise. Much of this can be attributed to remote work and insecure environments as well as workers connecting to unsecured public Wi-Fi networks. It’s time to look at stopping ransomware threats.
However it is happening, attack vectors such as ransomware are up by over 400% since the start of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Costs of ransomware are now expected to reach over $20 billion this year, and a recovery cost of $2 million per business. This is enough to close the doors of many small businesses. If that isn’t bad enough, it is expected that 75% of organizations will deal with some type of attack within the next 5 years.
Is there any hope in sight? Thankfully, cybersecurity companies are hard at work to secure our digital futures, brining in the best combination of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and some of the brightest humans with massive experience in the world of cybersecurity.
