In 2021, the number of ransomware attacks reached an absolute peak, with more than 300 million attempts. Recent research shows that known cyber threats are increasingly combined to spread ransomware. A ransomware attack is one of the leading causes of organizational security breaches and can have devastating consequences.
Ransomware is a form of hacking. As the name suggests, hackers block a computer – or the data on it – and then demand a ransom from the user to free the computer. The period that organizational activities are hindered by this can cause a lot of frustration for the end user, image damage and dramatic loss of income.
