80% of UK businesses infected with ransomware ultimately paid the ransom. This makes the UK the country most likely to pay cyber criminals, twice as likely as the global average. 78% of UK businesses were hit with ransomware in 2021, and 82% paid the hackers to restore access to their data. Mostly the result of a successful phishing attack.
A staggering 91% of UK businesses faced bulk, indiscriminate phishing attacks last year, and 91% of those attacks were successful. Isn’t it shocking that hackers attack every 39 seconds, on average, 2,244 times a day.
