  • 37%

    of all backup repositories were affected by a successful attack.

  • 89%

    of organizations did not cite the ransom payment as the largest financial impact.

  • 43%

    of affected data won’t be recoverable.

  • 33%

    of organizations that paid the ransom still could not recover even after paying.

    63% of organizations believe a significant or complete overhaul is needed between IT and cybersecurity teams
