The massive shift to remote working has increased vulnerabilities and risk as people, processes, and technology controls are targeted by cyber attackers. This new way of working has created even more opportunities for attackers to exploit common control gaps and move laterally through an environment to deploy ransomware. Targeting critical infrastructure, operations, and sensitive data isn’t simply potentially devastating for companies, it’s lucrative for malicious actors as the average amount paid out by ransomware victims continues to increase.
