Petya, WannaCry, and More: How to Protect Yourself from the New Generation of Ransomware [Webinar]
Ransomware has been in the headlines a lot lately, and for good reason. In the past two months, two separate ransomware attacks have gone global, wreaking havoc by locking employees out of their computers at national banks, billion-dollar companies, government agencies, nuclear power plants, and more.
How Big a Threat is Ransomware?
The two headline-making ransomware attacks, Petya and WannaCry, caused billions of dollars in damage and lost productivity, but they likely represent only the tip of the iceberg. A report from the Department of Justice noted a 300-percent increase in daily ransomware attacks from 2015 to 2016, and a Ponemon Institute survey from Jan. 2017 reported that 51-percent of companies had experienced at least one ransomware attack in the past year. According to one report, ransomware attacks have risen from 3.8 million in 2015 to a mind-boggling 638 million in 2016, and this number is sure to rise in 2017.
These numbers, and the recent high-profile malware attacks should serve as wakeup calls to organizations everywhere: Unless you have the proper defenses, ransomware will find its way into your system, and it will make you pay.
