Ransomware has been one of the most significant and concerning cybersecurity issues for the past few years. According to the Verizon 2022 Data Breach Investigations Report, 25% of all breaches in 2022 were due to social engineering attacks, particularly ransomware. Moreover, ransomware attacks are rising at an alarming rate year-over-year, with a staggering 13% increase observed in 2022 as compared to 2021. Besides that, the emerging trends in ransomware, like supply chain attacks, double extortion, Ransomware as a Service (RaaS), and similar others, are worsening the whole situation.
The Average Cost of a Ransomware Attack
The cost of ransomware attacks on victim organizations has increased to an alarming level. According to the IBM Cost of a Data Breach 2022 Report, the average ransom payment is $812,360, while the overall cost of a ransomware attack on average is $4.5 million.
The ever-increasing landscape of ransomware attacks and the devastating consequences of ransomware breaches have elevated the need for expert guidance and comprehensive protection. This is why the need for a reliable and professional Ransomware Consult service is becoming inevitable.
