15% of Slovak companies confronted with whether to pay ransom to hackers

06.08.2020

Over the past 12 months, 15% of Slovak and Czech companies have been confronted with whether to pay ransom to hackers following a ransomware attack, according to a survey by Flowmon Networks. Other global survey by CyberEdge showed that while 38% of victims of such attacks admitted to paying the ransom two years ago, the share rose to 45% last year and even 58% this year. This guarantees the number of attacks will increase. In July, Garmin, maker of navigation systems and smart watches, is reported to have paid a multi-million dollar ransom. IT experts do not recommend paying the ransom, as in a third of the cases, hackers stop communication after receiving it and victims do not get their data back.
