You've got backups, so you may assume ransomware is no big deal.
If you do get hit you could just ignore the ransom, restore your data from backups and get back to whatever you were doing. But it's not that simple.
According to a recent survey of 1200 organisations hit by ransomware in 2022, ransomware targeted the organisation's backups in 93% of cases.
In 49% of cases, it knocked out most or all of the backups, and in 28% of cases, some of them. In 18% it tried to compromise backups but failed. Only in 7% of cases did it leave the backups alone.
These alarming figures come from the 2023 Veeam Ransomware Trends Report.
In cases where a ransom was paid:
When recovering data, 44% of respondents would recover to a staging server, which would then be scanned.
In 56% of cases, there would be no staging server and recovery would involve restoring backups directly to a live environment, potentially restoring ransomware-compromised files.
