ARE YOUR CLIENTS PREPARED FOR A RANSOMWARE ATTACK?

Ransomware has become a significant and growing business risk. Due to the lucrative nature of ransomware, the “industry” is growing in size and sophistication, and the criminals’ techniques are becoming more effective. Currently, ransom demands of $25,000 and above are commonplace, and that cost is likely to continue to increase in the future. If one of your clients suffered a ransomware attack, would you know how to counsel them?

  • Top 5 things to do (and not to do) during initial stages of an incident
