Would you pay $4.4 million to a bad actor to release your data from a ransomware attack as Colonial Pipeline did? Even if you don’t, you will be facing significant costs from business disruption as your organization recovers from an outage and restores its data. That’s what happened at the Republic of Ireland’s national health service.
These recent ransomware attacks are reminders that bad actors are working relentlessly. At the same time, it’s getting harder and harder to find and hire the cybersecurity experts that can stop them. In 2021 globally, there are expected to be 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs. With attacks on the rise and few experts available to man the ramparts, the situation may feel hopeless.
