You Got To Think Ahead

Ransomware attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated, and organizations must be proactive in protecting themselves against these threats.

In recent years, ransomware has become one of the biggest cybersecurity threats faced by organizations. Threat actors are using increasingly sophisticated methods to infiltrate networks, encrypt data, and demand payment. According to CERT-In, the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team, ransomware incidents have increased in India by 53% in 2022 compared to incidents recorded in the prior year, resulting in the IT and ITeS sector being the most severely affected, followed by banking and manufacturing. The “India Ransomware Report 2022” states that in 2022, ransomware actors targeted companies that provide key infrastructure and interrupted critical services in an effort to pressure victims into paying ransom. Fortunately, there are cybersecurity companies that are leading the charge in combating these threats.
