Threatpost Poll: Weigh in on Ransomware Security

ransomware security

Provide your views on ransomware and how to deal with it in our anonymous Threatpost poll.

It’s no secret that ransomware attacks continue to rise – with the number of attacks  jumping by 350 percent since 2018. Healthcare systems have been hit particularly hard over the past year by ransomware actors, with a recent report saying that healthcare organizations have seen a 45 percent increase in cyberattacks since November. But, it’s a scourge affecting all sectors.

Threatpost would like to hear from readers on their experiences with ransomware since 2018 — as well as thoughts on proper defenses, the role of cyberinsurance and what the appropriate courses of action should be in the event of an attack. Weigh in with our poll, below — all answers will be kept anonymous and confidential. The data will be tabulated and used to identify key trends, to be revealed in an upcoming feature.

Thank you for your participation!

    There are attack vectors in every imaginable form - if you are without the proper tooling/tech (including a VSOC, SIEM, IAM, PAM, DLP, FIM, IOC's, Threat Prevent/Detect, Vuln/Patching Mgmt, Endpoint/MDM, network segmentation, etc etc etc) then you are in real trouble - if you are actually targeted, you're screwed. Sadly many company boards/C-levels will keep their heads tucked into the sand while the security teams await the inevitable. All companies have PII/PCI that hackers would love to take - the amount and ease in which they can do so is subject to the odds... which in the long run are truly against you. Without a commitment to security (Tech/Process/Bodies) and visibility for CISO's at the highest levels of the company AT REGULAR INTERVALS you can expect to be breached and not have the ability to react in time while your precious data is siphoned off or destroyed.

    Shouldn't the poll questions be limited from 2018 onward since that is the premise at the top of the article? Otherwise you are asking people to go back to 2012-2013 with their answers and the ransomware playing field has changed a lot since then to where it is now.
