Ransomware Protection: Insider Tips From Threat Intelligence
According to the 2021 IBM Ponemon Cost of a Data Breach Report, ransomware and destructive malware breaches ($4.52 million USD) cost more than the average malicious attack ($3.86 million USD). A ransomware attack can result in down time for your business, loss of data, as well as compromised intellectual property and other confidential information. As these attacks rise, it’s important to learn more about the ways threat actors and ransomware gangs target businesses and the ways you can defend against these cyberattacks.
