ESG surveyed 620 IT and cybersecurity professionals personally involved with the technology and processes associated with protecting against ransomware attacks at mid-market (100-999 employees) and enterprise (1,000 or more employees) to connect the dots between those organizations that feel most prepared and the specific strategies and plans they are using to get there.
This study sought to:
- Understand the proactive and reactive measures organizations have in place to defend against the ransomware threat.
- Segment the levels of ransomware preparedness for all key defense phases.
- Examine the state of ransomware mitigation best practices across readiness, prevention, response, and recovery phases.
- Identify the priorities and plans associated with mitigating the ransomware threat in the coming 12-18 months.
