Ransomware attacks have devastating consequences for many businesses. Those go beyond the monetary loss tied to ransom-encrypted data, and include disrupted operations, unhappy customers, regulatory fines, and—worst of all—reputational damage that can be hard to overcome.
It is important to understand that ransomware events cannot be completely avoided. Humans will continue to open emails and click on links that launch malware. Ransomware attacks have become pervasive and require a strong and comprehensive level of preparedness and ongoing protection.
