Cybercrime continues to escalate, driven by the lucrative nature of cyberattacks and the minimal risks involved. In 2023 alone, the FBI received over 880,000 complaints, highlighting the staggering financial impact of cybercrime, which exceeded USD 12.5 billion in potential damages. Ransomware attacks, in particular, have emerged as a pervasive global threat, prompting organizations to invest heavily in cybersecurity measures.

Ransomware poses a significant risk to businesses, as attackers exploit vulnerabilities to encrypt vital data, rendering it inaccessible and causing severe disruptions to operations. However, with proactive measures and robust defenses in place, organizations can mitigate the risks associated with ransomware attacks.
