C-level leaders have realised that ransomware is a business problem that won’t simply go away upon paying the ransom. Rob Shapland, the highly regarded cybersecurity trainer, argues that companies that have a holistic view can better plan for threats, prevent lateral movement, and control the narrative in the aftermath of attacks.
The sheer number, persistence and sophistication of ransomware attacks have gone up in recent times. In 2021 alone, a staggering 623 million attacks happened. All trends indicate that 2022 has headed in the same direction. In the same period, the number of ransom payments that have hit the million-dollar mark has gone up. Not just cybersecurity leaders, but the entire board has begun to pay closer attention.
