Cyber Security Incidents on the rise
Cyber security incidents are on the rise. In fact, it’s predicted that by 2022 cybercrime will cost the world $7 trillion in damages. Cybersecurity is becoming an ever-increasing concern for companies in every industry, and this has led to a cybersecurity skills gap that’s projected to grow to more than 1 million unfilled jobs globally by 2019.
Despite the increasing frequency and severity of ransomware attacks, many organizations are still not taking the necessary precautions to protect themselves. For example, a recent study found that only 34 percent of businesses have a plan in place for dealing with ransomware attacks. Organizations need to take steps to protect themselves from ransomware attacks by installing comprehensive security software, backing up their data regularly, and training employees on how to identify and respond to potential threats.
Some of the most high-profile ransomware attacks have targeted hospitals, schools, and government agencies. In March 2017, for example, the city of Atlanta was hit with a ransomware attack that shut down its computer systems for several days. And in May 2017, the WannaCry ransomware attack affected more than 200,000 computers in 150 countries.
