Ransomware continues to be a major concern, as it's a “top three” problem for organizations worldwide. Unfortunately, the impact of ransomware on small to mid-sized businesses can be devastating. Among those who have experienced a successful infiltration of the corporate network by ransomware, 18 percent reported that they had to cease business operations immediately, and 18 percent lost revenue. This exclusive survey with Osterman Research, undertaken in the UK as part of a larger survey of organizations in five additional geographies – the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia and Singapore – talks about ransomware and other critical security issues.
