When you pay it and still don’t get back what was stolen, which is happening more often with ransomware, at least according to a new survey of IT pros working in small and midsize businesses.
The survey found that one in five SMBs suffered a ransomware attack in the last 12 months. About 40% of those affected paid attackers an average of $2,423 to regain access to their data — but disturbingly, less than half of those who paid a ransom actually got their information back. The rest were out both data and cash.
