Cyber Security 101: Ransomware

Cyber Security 101: Ransomware

Ransomware continues to be one of the biggest threats to all organisations and shows no signs of going away any time soon. In fact, 66% of organisations were affected by Ransomware in 20231. With recent media reports and vendor scaremongering, it would seem that it may already be too late! However, this is not necessarily the case.

With most hackers looking for any opportunity to gain access, organisations are actively working to guard against ransomware, but despite this, it seems many aren’t taking essential precautions. While 78% of organisations believe they are “very” or “extremely” prepared to mitigate an attack, 50% still fell victim to ransomware last year.

This guide helps you to understand the threat and explores the most common ways a ransomware breach happens. It outlines things that your IT staff and users can do to avoid common mistakes and vulnerabilities, as well as reduce the chances of any unwanted intrusions. It also looks at ways you can protect your data so that you can avoid a situation where someone who has broken into your network, can completely deny you access to your live and backed-up data.
