Or Heaven if You're Running a RaaS Crew
Live Webinar June 17 @ 10 AM PT
Phishing threats have been soaring off the charts in the last 12 months, and so has ransomware. It’s no surprise that both are on the rise. It’s a lucrative business. SlashNext Labs saw a 350% increase in phishing in 2020, with a record of 50K spear-phishing attacks in a single day. Likewise, ransomware has increased with an attack happening every 11 seconds and global recovery costs will exceed $20 billion in 2021.
Given the rise in attacks on critical organizations like the Colonial Pipeline and JBS, ransomware is quickly becoming a Board of Directors-level issue. Ransomware uses phishing and social engineering as its main attack vector, so stopping it at the source is paramount.
