It finally happened. In spite of your best efforts, you experience an active ransomware attack.
How did it happen? Ransomware can get in via so many paths. Maybe somewhere, somebody in the company fell for a phishing scam and now you find…
Then a pop-up message appears on your computer screen demanding a large sum of money in untraceable cryptocurrency in exchange for a decryption key or your data/assets will be destroyed or made available to the public. Maybe that pop-up even shows a clock ticking.
Sure, there’s concern about the risk of losing valuable company data or assets. That’s not all though, is it? There are also costs of disruption to daily business activities, remedying the breach, possible regulatory fines and legal fees for compliance violations, plus damage to the company reputation.
