A ransomware attack called Wannacry hit Europe last Friday. In the past few days, it’s spread to more 150 countries and more than 300,000 people. Just as cybersecurity experts predicted last year, ransomware attacks are on a dramatic rise.

In the U.S. alone, 63% of businesses reported experiencing a cyber incident in the past year, and 47% said they had two or more, according to the 2017 Hiscox Cyber Readiness Report.

In wake of recent cyberattacks such as Wannacry and the Gmail Docs phishing attack, businesses are making cybersecurity a top priority. However, any company can experience a vulnerability no matter how prepared they are. That’s why we highly recommend you consider purchasing cyber insurance.
