Ransomware developers and affiliates have been telling victims that they must pay the ransom or stolen data and internal company secrets would be publicly released. Unfortunately, six- and seven-figure demands have become routine among ransomware attacks.
“These cyber attacks have no boundaries and are truly a global issue. Ransomware has grown in frequency and severity, and extortion demands have risen significantly. A ransomware incident is one of the most disruptive and costly attacks your organization can suffer,” according to Derek Laczniak, CIC, Director-Cyber Liability at M3 Insurance. Laczniak, who leads the cyber liability strategic relationship with M3 and CUNA Mutual Group, adds, “There’s no foolproof way of preventing ransomware attacks from occurring; however, there are a number of things to know to help you be prepared.”
