Ransomware Protection in Chatham That Won’t Let You Down
Ransomware attacks have exploded in recent years, with the average ransomware demand rising in lockstep with the number of attacks. In 2020 the average ransomware payment was around £300,000. This year it has risen to nearly £450,000. If you are an SME owner you have 2 choices: you can hope in vain that you won’t be targeted, or you can call Proximitum for effective ransomware protection in Chatham.
A Sophisticated Threat Requires a Sophisticated Response
Ransomware attacks crept up on a business world unprepared to deal with them. For years they were considered a kind of niche problem that mostly affected healthcare websites. But over the past decade, they've gone mainstream, driven by the ability of attackers to meld their insidious Trojan horse programs with blockchain technology, the force behind cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.
The once obscure topic of ransomware became frontpage news around the world in early 2021 when a hacker group calling themselves Darkside took over servers controlling the Colonial energy pipeline in the US. Overnight petrol distribution throughout the southeast United States dried up with the hackers demanding - and getting - $4.4 million worth of Bitcoin cryptocurrency. With the help of the FBI Colonial recovered some of the ransom, but more than half remains in the hands of the hackers.
