The Impact of Ransomware
The financial impact of ransomware is huge. When you add together the full costs of remediation, including downtime, people time, device cost, network cost, lost opportunities, and ransom paid, the final sums are eye-watering.
Ransomware is not new. In fact, the AIDS Information Trojan, the world’s first cyber ransomware attack was released in December of 1989. Since then, cybercriminals have continued to take advantage of developments in both technology and wider society to evolve and finesse their ransomware attacks.
