Ransomware has accounted for 79% of all cybersecurity incidents since 2021. Be that as it may, it has been the greatest threat to cybersecurity for a long time.

These types of malicious attacks are becoming more and more common, leaving many businesses vulnerable and at high risk of sensitive data breaches and exposure. Ensuring your company knows how to defend against ransomware and secure its data is, hence, imperative to run your business.
