    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is ransomware?

    Ransomware is a form of malware that encrypts a victim’s files. The attacker then demands a ransom payment from the victim to restore access to the data usually in the form of cryptocurrency. Victims are provided instructions for payment with the promise that data will be decrypted upon receipt of the payment.

    Can ransomware be removed?

    It depends on the type of ransomware. Sometimes common and older ransomware decryption keys can be obtained from previous victims, making them available on the Internet. However, ransomware is constantly evolving with increasing levels of encryption. The first response to ransomware should be to remove the infected install and implement your backup. Attackers understand this, however, and target backups.

    How common are ransomware attacks?

    In 2020, threat actors carried out more than 4,000 attacks daily. 1 in 3,000 emails that passed through filters contained malware. There was a 19-day downtime following a ransomware attack. It is estimated that in 2021, ransomware attacks against businesses will occur every 11 seconds, and the global cost associated with ransomware recovery will exceed $20 billion.

    What is the average ransomware ransom payment?

    In 2020, the average ransomware payment made by a victimised organisation was $233,217.00 USD.

    Should we pay the ransom?

    Good question. Law enforcement agencies recommend that you do not. While it is not generally illegal to do so, there is absolutely no guarantee that the attacker will decrypt your data upon receiving payment. Ethics notwithstanding, the answer is ultimately a business decision and may depend on a cost-benefit analysis.
