Fewer Cyber Attacks Are Seeing Ransom Payouts, Report Finds
(TNS) — A new study by a Norwalk information technology vendor suggests only three of every 100 organizations pay off the hackers that seize control of their systems in "ransomware" attacks — with the rest choosing to incur significant headaches and expense to recover data, or rebuild otherwise a portion or all of a targeted IT system from scratch.
Datto released survey results on Tuesday covering how small- and mid-size businesses deal with the threats of ransomware, email "phishing" and other methods to infiltrate their systems. The company received about 3,000 responses from survey participants in the United States and seven other countries.
