Making the case
The pros behind Carbonite + Webroot joined forces with industry leading researchers at IDC to develop an easy-to-understand framework for fighting back against cybercrime. The results? A 6-step plan for adopting a cyber resilience strategy meant to keep businesses safe.
IDC looked into the data and past the alarming headlines with million-dollar ransom payments and crippling supply chain attacks.
The facts they found are eye-opening and underline why cyber resilience is the best strategy:
- less than 2% of full-time staff at SMBs are dedicated to tech
- 30% of companies that paid a ransom forked over between $100,000 and $1 million
- 56% of ransomware victims suffered at least a few days or a week of downtime
