Chances are ransomware hackers are researching your company right now. They’re investing time and money to choose the most profitable targets and are assessing how they can overcome your organization’s defenses.
Ransomware criminals will first consider your company’s ability to pay. They will often run financial analyses (just like a Wall Street analyst), research your top executives’ salaries, and try to determine if your company has cyber insurance.
Then, they’ll assess the quality of your organization’s defenses. They may probe your organization’s cybersecurity for months before finally deciding on an attack. Lastly, they’ll consider how much pain they can cause the organization quickly.
If the ransomware criminal can rapidly cripple your organization’s critical operations, they know that your organization may have no choice but to pay a larger ransom.
