According to new research by Sophos, a whopping 54% of organisations were hit by ransomware last year, and on average companies reported two attacks.
Within the companies that do get hit, the attack is not only limited to a small number of employees either, with 46% of a company’s devices on average affected by each attack.
And on to the key question – how much financial impact can a ransomware attack have on a business? According to Sophos it’s around $133,000 USD, which is the cost of around 150,000 chocolate bars.
If you’d rather have the chocolate bars, pay off some of your mortgage or buy new car(s) than face the prospect of a ransomware attack, you can download your copy of the Sophos infographic to read more ransomware facts and figures and why your company should consider an antivirus solution.
