Ransomware Attacks In 2020
The debate of whether or not organisations should pay ransoms to cybercriminals in return for their unencrypted data has been going on for years. On one hand, as data is now the lifeblood of almost all organisations a successful ransomware attack can mean business closure. However, succumbing to the ransom is only fuelling the cybercrime economy which is now estimated to be the 3rd largest in the world. But a recent report into ransomware attacks may add weight to the notion of never paying the ransom.
