Ransomware has become the number one cybersecurity risk in the world. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, there have been an average of 4,000 ransomware attacks every day since 2016. Cybercriminals have turned malware and hacking into a robust, money-driven industry complete with commercial-grade exploit kits widely available to those who seek them. A haphazard approach to online security cannot keep up. New cyberthreats emerge every minute and businesses need to protect themselves against costly security incidents.
Ransomware is especially dangerous for small and medium businesses, many of whom do not have the resources in place to fend off these attacks. With a Ransomware Evaluation, you can quickly understand your exposure to ransomware attacks – and how to protect your business.

Trojan, worm or other form of malicious software takes an environment hostage by making it unavailable to use unless a payment is made. The most common forms totally encrypt the environment and require payment to decrypt. However, there are numerous other tactics being deployed that focus on availability of systems and data.
Small and Medium Businesses
More than half of hacking attacks specifically target small businesses, locking them out of their networks and demanding huge payments to get back in. The end results? More than half of SMBs that are hacked go out of business within 6 months of being victimized.
Financial institutions have huge stores of highly sensitive, personally identifiable data that can be leveraged and monetized by cybercriminals. And this is where the money is.
Over 2,100 data breaches in the healthcare industry have been reported since 2009 and there is a reason why. They are ideal targets due to the amount of sensitive personally identifiable information they collect and store, as well as the large number of connected devices typically integrated into their systems.
Along with the healthcare industry, governments are often ideal targets for ransomware attacks. The reason? Governments, especially local and state, who must provide public services often cannot afford, financially or civically, to have data compromised to the point of governance paralysis. And even worse, only around 38% of local and state government employees are trained in ransomware attack prevention. (IBM, 2020)
Schools and Educational Services
Ironically, educational institutions typically aren’t savvy in information security and cyberattack mitigation. Even if they have the expertise, they may lack the financial means to wage a protracted war with a cyber ransom group.
Law firms aren’t known for investing large sums in security. In most cases, they aren’t adroit at internal controls, either. Yet firms are highly dependent on their ability to create and share information. What’s more, they’re notoriously hesitant to go public with a breach, fearing that their typically high-profile client base would be shaken. Add it all up, and you have an industry segment that’s very likely to be targeted—and to capitulate.
