3 MYTHS ABOUT RANSOMWARE

Ransomware

Ransomware is a bigger problem than you think. There are three main misconceptions about ransom viruses and how they affect businesses:

  • Myth #1. BUSINESSES ARE LESS OF A TARGET THAN INDIVIDUALS.
    How big a threat is ransomware for businesses? Very big, and it's only going to increase. The ransom market price for businesses is many thousands of dollars, so cybercriminals see a big business opportunity from ransom payouts.
  • Myth #2. SMALL- AND MEDIUM-SIZED BUSINESSES (SMBS) ARE LESS OF A TARGET THAN LARGE ENTERPRISES.
    Cybercriminals do not care if you are a large or small business. If you think targeted ransomware attacks are only limited to large enterprises, think again. Every size business can be a target, and no business is immune.
  • Myth #3. IT'S NOT THAT BIG A THREAT.
    Only 37% of companies consider ransomware a serious danger. This means that most companies have their guard down, and cybercriminals know it. Your entire organization should be on alert and stay aware of the growing threat of ransomware.
