Paying Ransomware Could Lead To Fines
Ransomware has become an all too common problem for businesses. The question of whether a company should pay the ransom to get their information back is a complex one. More statistics are showing that using a proactive plan to information security will have better results than paying the ransom. Recent statistics do show that a higher percentage of victims are getting their data recovered, but 1/3 of victims still are not. In addition, statistics show that lost work costs a company several times more than the cost of the ransom.
