Ransomware is a multi-million dollar a year online business that can strike any organization.
Both Ransomware and legitimate business engage in email marketing campaigns with the intent of making sales to new customers. In the case of legitimate business, some good or service of value is returned to the client. In the case of ransomware, business is slowed or halted by malware that locks or deletes files, and a ransom is demanded that may or may not stop the attack or reverse the damage if paid. Ransomware is criminal but make no mistakes: its top producers make millions of dollars a year in revenue.
In fact, it’s so profitable that traditional channels of cyber theft are being abandoned in favour of ransomware. Ransomware is conducted via a shotgun marketing approach. The “marks” have already taken the bait by the time the attacker is even aware of them, and if the extortion attempt is successful, the money comes in automatically. There’s no credit card numbers or bank information to steal. Just data kidnapping, with funds sent to an untraceable account.
Worse, unlike other forms of fraud, there is little to no government crack-down on the perpetrators of ransomware attacks. Organizations are still mostly on their own when it comes to stopping ransomware attacks. If you pay the ransom, will your data be restored, or will the extortion just continue to escalate? If you choose not to pay the ransom and restore from backup, there are still costs to be paid. Desktops and servers must be disinfected and backup data restored: a process that may take days or even weeks, during which time productivity is lost.
