The increase in attacks is also related to the availability of threats. Check Point Software’s Incident Response Team, which has dealt with countless ransomware cases worldwide, recommends following these steps when a ransomware attack occurs.

How Your Organization Can Protect Itself

By the time you have finished reading this sentence, an organization somewhere in the world will have fallen victim to a ransomware attack and had at least some of its corporate data encrypted.  On average, the criminals behind ransomware attacks hit a new organization every 10 seconds during 2020. Less than five years ago, the cadence of attacks was around one every 40 seconds – showing just how the cyber-crime economy relies on ransomware as a revenue generator.
