Cybersecurity is your number one priority in 2022. And Lan-Mark is here to help.
Are You Ready To Face a Ransomware Attack?
A criminal needs to conduct only one successful attack against your business to get rich.
Your business has to be successful in protecting against all attacks, all the time.
Top 5 Cybersecurity Challenges in 2022
According to a recent survey conducted by Microsoft, the top five security challenges in 2022, as reported by survey takers, are as follows:
It is not surprising that ransomware ended up on top of the list of IT security challenges in 2022. Ransomware attacks are accelerating. Recent high ransome payouts by big corporations and the existence of cryptocurrencies make ransomware very attractive for the threat actors. But the criminals currently target ransomware attacks not only towards big corporations. Smaller players nowadays use Ransomware as a Service to target small businesses. Ransomware as a Service (RaaS) is a business model between ransomware operators and affiliates in which affiliates pay to launch ransomware attacks developed by operators. Just like a variation of software as a service (e.g. Office 365) business model.
RaaS kits allow affiliates lacking the skill or time to develop their own ransomware variant to be up and running quickly and affordably. They are easy to find on the dark web, where they are advertised in the same way that goods are advertised on the legitimate web.
A RaaS kit may include 24/7 support, bundled offers, user reviews, forums, and other features identical to those offered by legitimate SaaS providers. The price of RaaS kits ranges from $40 per month to several thousand dollars – trivial amounts, considering that the average ransom demand in 2021 was $6 million. A threat actor doesn’t need every attack to become rich.
