Ransomware Stormcast 2017
The Internet is a BAD neighborhood. Ransomware will continue to evolve in 2017 . Over 66% of Japanese businesses that were hit with ransomware in 2016 paid the ransom! This means businesses are not backing up their critical data. 93% of businesses hit by ransomware had anti-virus software installed which provides a false sense of security against ransomware as it is not a virus. Human nature demonstrates that 1 in 5 of all company workers will click on a phishing email. DATA BACKUP IS THE #1 RECOMMENDED CYBER SECURITY MITIGATION BEST PRACTICE. Data Protection is the last line of defense.
