Microsoft 365 accounts prove an attractive target for ransomware attacks

365 Ransomware Protection

Ransomware attacks have consistently hit the headlines in recent years, causing serious reputational and financial losses for organisations in every industry. Ransomware attackers ruthlessly seize data from compromised companies, encrypt the data taking systems offline, extort payouts to restore access and blackmail companies to prevent stolen data from being publicly exposed.

The average ransomware payment is increasing year upon year, whilst it’s the cost of recovering from a ransomware attack that is the real issue. Recovery costs are typically around ten times the ransomware payment made.

While it’s clear that ransomware has a financial effect on businesses that are compromised, what may be an even bigger concern is the potential of data loss. This risk is particularly high for organisations using Microsoft 365 in their daily operations.
