Facing Modern Cybersecurity Challenges Together

Ransomware is a seemingly simple term with an (unfortunately) broad definition. It refers to ANY type of malware that prevents users from accessing a particular system unless a pre-determined ransom is paid.

If one of your business computers is hit with a ransomware infection, for example, it is very likely that ALL of the data on that hard drive will be encrypted. You'll be greeted by a screen indicating that the only way to get your files back is to pay a sum of money - usually in the hundreds or even thousands of dollars - and even then it's not a guarantee.

The Ransomware Threat: Facts and Figures

heading icon white bg

If it seems like you've been hearing more and more about ransomware lately, you're not imagining things - attacks worldwide are on the rise, in large part because they're both so straightforward to pull off and so effective from the perspective of attackers. Take a look at some of the following statistics to get a better idea of the situation we now collectively face:

  • heading icon white bg

    According to one recent study, the volume of ransomware attacks literally tripled over the course of 2017. A business was attacked on average every two minutes during quarter 1, which jumped to every 40 seconds during quarter 3.

    An amazing six out of every ten malware attacks in 2017 were ransomware based, meaning that this is quickly becoming the preferred method that hackers are using to attack your business, your employees, your users and your brand.

    According to the experts at Kaspersky, one out of every five small and medium-sized businesses who actually paid the requested ransom still never got their data back.

    But perhaps the most damning statistic of all is the following. The average "profit per victim" amount jumped from just $294 in 2015 to $1,077 in 2017 - a massive 266% increase and a trend that shows absolutely no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

But luckily, ransomware is one threat that you do NOT have to take laying down - not when you've got the professionals at LayeredIT by your side.
