Attacks happen. A lot. It’s hard to find actual numbers and statistics on attacks as companies aren’t particularly proud when this happens, but what I did find tells a consistent story...
Average ransom is around $180,000 for larger companies, $6000 for smaller companies
Email infections are the most common
Business is interrupted for days or weeks as a result.
There’s some further information on this, with numbers, over on the Veeam site.
So we can see that this is a big problem. You’d expect every company to be very worried and actively working to eliminate this problem, right?
