Ransomware is on the rise as criminal cybergangs are breaching networks and extracting, encrypting, and holding for ransom an organization’s most valuable assets.

This Research Note identifies eight steps organizations can take to reduce the risk and impact of ransomware.


Ransomware attacks have been on the rise over the last several years, with more than 70% of organizations worldwide being impacted by these attacks just last year. State-sponsored attacks are also on the rise, with highly sophisticated, well-funded cybersecurity attacks against assets in government, infrastructure, and enterprises.

Most enterprises will be impacted by ransomware attacks over time, and how well you survive will greatly depend on how prepared you are to quickly recover from the attack.

This Research Note provides guidance on steps an enterprise can take to minimize the damage and cost of an attack.
