Have you ever paid the ransom?

 
 

Research which has been carried out by Trend Micro, has found that almost 1 in 3 companies that have paid the ransom when been infected haven’t got their data back. Trend Micro have found that in the last 2 years, 44 % of UK companies have been affected by ransomware. The study also showed that a large number of companies payed the ransom.

The ransom amount varies every time. Some of the companies have also reported that they have been given under 24 hours to pay up. Companies that have been affected by ransomware estimate that it roughly takes 33 man hours to fix these issues.
