A shocking number of businesses aren’t getting their data back after a ransomware attack

A vast majority of businesses that pay the demand following a ransomware (opens in new tab) attack don’t end up retrieving their encrypted and stolen data, a new report has claimed.

In its “State of data security by Rubrik Zero Labs: The hard truths of data security” report, based on a poll of more than 1,600 IT and security leaders (including CISOs and CIOs), the company found just 16% of global organizations that paid a ransom and received a decryptor actually managed to recover all of their data.
