Cities and Governments

Protect Your Operations from Ransomware

If you have been watching the news, you know what is going on. Ransomware attacks on governments in the US rose 28% in 2018 from the previous year. As of October 31st, 2019, there have already been 87 reported attacks, including attacks on Baltimore, MD; 23 Texas Municipalities; and Riviera Beach, FL, making 2019 the highest reported year for ransomware attacks on municipalities.

Not only have ransomware attacks been increasing in 2019, but also the ransom amount. Since 2017, ransoms have increased over 10 times. In Riviera Beach, ransomers demanded $600,000, and less than two weeks earlier, $500,000 from Lake City, FL. However, it’s much worse for those who don’t pay the ransom, costing the cities millions of dollars. Since the ransomware attack on May 7th, Baltimore has spent over $18 million trying to recover from the incident.

We know how critical your data and network are to you and your citizens because we are your citizens. That is why we partner with Rubrik, to bring stability and security to your organization so you can rest easy, despite the odds.
