Ransomware Attack? You are the NEXT ONE!

Ransomware attack

There are $20 Billion damages from ransomware in 2021.

Ransomware is the fastest-growing version of cybercrime, and it is true that downtime caused by ransomware is costly.

The main findings of the Global Survey of the State of Ransomware in 2021 include:

  • The average cost of fixing ransomware attacks has more than doubled in the past 12 months. Repair costs, including business downtime, lost orders, and operating costs, have increased from an average of US$761,106 in 2020 to US$1.85 million in 2021. This means that the average cost of recovering from a ransomware attack is now an average of 10 times the ransom payment.
  • The average ransom paid was $170,404. Although US$3.2 million was the highest payment among respondents, the most common payment was US$10,000. 10 organizations paid a ransom of $1 million or more.
  • The number of organizations paying ransom increased from 26% in 2020 to 32% in 2021, although less than one-tenth (8%) managed to retrieve all data.
