What Is Ransomware?
Ransomware is a specific and extremely harmful type of malware used by cybercriminals to extort money from individuals, organizations, and businesses. The infections block access to your data until you make a ransom payment, at which point you are supposed to regain access.
Nearly 40% of the victims who pay the ransom never get their data back and 73% of those that pay are targeted again later – which is why everyone must protect against ransomware.
Some quick Stats:
7 out of 10 companies admit not being ready to respond to an attack
$13,000 is the average ransom demanded from organizations
Ransomware Attacks Someone Every 11 Seconds
373,700 Protected users
487,300 Protection Events
SMBs are not prepared – When 99% of Singapore’s economy is comprised of small-to-medium businesses (SMBs), the fact that over 30% of SMBs suffered a ransomware attack in 2018 is a wake-up call for strengthening defences. New Zealand is in a similar situation.
Will this affect me and my business here in New Zealand? Very much. Although hackers still go after the bigger international players, most of these now have tighter security measures in place and the lowest hanging fruit for hackers are SMBs all over the world and yes here in NZ, each week there is news of data breaches and hacks in the media. And these hackers are not going to demand millions from an SMB, they may only ask for several thousand, recently we spoke to a business that was asked to pay via bitcoin, considering 1 bitcoin is currently worth $15,000NZ. Put a price on what you are okay with financially to lose and see if that measures up with our monthly fees for protection.
