According to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC), there has been a growing risk arising from ransomware attacks in the region.
From January to June 2020, the number of data breach notifications attributed to ransomware attacks increased by more than 150% compared to the previous six months—increasing from 13 to 331.
Ransomware is a strain of malicious software which encrypts the data stored on the affected system, rendering the data either unusable or inaccesible.
The malicious actor behind the attack then demands a sum of money be paid for the decryption key. The decryption key may or may not be provided after the ransom is paid.
This IDC InfoBrief looks at A/NZ organisations' perspectives and experiences in recovering from ransomware attacks. It explores best practices and plans to recover or remediate from ransomware.
