Since the publication of Axio’s 2022 State of Ransomware Preparedness Report, ransomware has been established as the attack method of choice for threat actors.

These attacks continue to serve a range of objectives, from intelligence gathering to social unrest to financial gain and profit. No industry or sector is immune, at a time when recent SEC Rules have placed an increased spotlight on cybersecurity.

  • Do our past research-based observations continue to support our assertion that improving foundational cybersecurity practices are a high-payoff investment in diminishing the impact of a ransomware attack?
