FREE Resource Kit for Ransomware Awareness Month in July

Original Source: Knowbe4

We’re here to help you and your users stay secure from the scourge of ransomware for Ransomware Awareness Month this July with a kit full of free resources!

According to Sophos’ State of Ransomware 2024 report, malicious emails or phishing were identified as the root case of ransomware attacks in 34% of cases.

And, according to a Cybersecurity Ventures report, global ransomware damage costs are expected to reach $265 billion by 2031, up from $20 billion in 2021. They are predicting a new attack (on a consumer or business) every 2 seconds.

"Ransomware remains one of the biggest cybersecurity threats facing organizations today, with the majority of organizations having experienced at least one ransomware attack in the past year,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO of KnowBe4. “Effectively combating these attacks requires a threat management strategy that directly addresses how cybercriminals gain initial access - through exploiting human vulnerabilities. Bad actors are continuously escalating their extortion tactics, making damages more severe and recovery exponentially harder. During Ransomware Awareness Month, our goal with this resource toolkit is to arm IT managers with the knowledge and tools they need to better protect their organizations. By increasing awareness of the evolving tactics used by cybercriminals, we can help build a more resilient human defense.”

Ransomware shows no signs of slowing down. We created this free resource kit to help you this month and beyond. Request your kit now to learn how ransomware has evolved, what new attack vectors you need to be prepared for, and our best advice on how to protect your organization.
