As the recent shutdown at the Colonial Pipeline proved, ransomware is now the number one cyber threat facing enterprises today. What was a rare but costly nuisance in 2015 has become one of the most pressing and common issues in cybersecurity. With the number of attacks surging more than 700% last year, ransomware has gone from a $325M to over $20B industry over the previous five years. With losses piling up and insurance companies canceling policies — the days of relying on cyber insurance as a ransomware strategy are over. With companies increasingly on their own, having a strong first line of defense against ransomware is critical.
Having a firm grasp of what is exposed and the assets hackers would target first is key to reducing risk. Gaining this knowledge requires companies to take proactive steps to understand their environment by investing in proven solutions such as attack surface management (ASM) that reduce an organization’s risk to shadow IT and ransomware. While ransomware attacks may be on the rise, you can stop the pain with the proper proactive approach.
This ebook outlines how organizations can use Attack Surface Management to establish a strong first line of defense against ransomware and tips you can use to take action today to reduce your risk.
