Threat Spotlight: Ransomware trends
Ransomware attacks have surged in 2021, with the number of attacks increasing dramatically and ransom amounts continuing to skyrocket. Cybercriminals are also expanding their targets, shifting their focus to our critical infrastructure and evolving into deep-rooted software supply chain attack campaigns, which can cause long-lasting devastation.
The grim outlook for the future of ransomware leaves no one spared from financial damage or brand-crushing headlines. Ransomware criminals are penetrating the foundation of our digital economy, from trusted software vendors to IT service providers.
Many of these attacks are being led by a handful of high-profile ransomware gangs. Our analysis of ransomware attacks that occurred between August 2020 and July 2021 showed that REvil accounted for 19% of attacks, and DarkSide is known to be the cause of 8%.

The survey was fielded in March and April 2021
Lessons Learned: Recovering from Ransomware
Data has become a more lucrative target for cybercriminals. Even with robust defense mechanisms in place, ransomware attacks continue to increase, successfully encrypting the data of many organizations. Being able to intelligently identify and remediate encrypted data makes recovery efforts easier and faster while reducing data loss and downtime.
For that reason, we’ve documented the lessons learned while helping customers recover in our latest ebook. It provides detailed processes and procedures for detecting, isolating, and recovering data infected by ransomware.
