Ransomware attacks have increased in volume over the last year, and the repercussions are widespread.

Overall, the average cost to remediate a ransomware attack was a business-crippling $1.4 million. Furthermore, 90% of victims said a ransomware attack impacted their ability to operate, while 86% of private sector organizations said it caused them to lose business/revenue.
