What is ransomware?
In 2020, 51% of surveyed businesses were hit by ransomware and it is expected that in 2021 a company will be hit by a ransomware attack every 11 seconds. Since the introduction of COVID, cybercriminals have started to attack new entities, including schools, healthcare providers/researchers, and government institutions.
