With the average ransomware payment per incident continuing to rise, organizations can expect the financial impact of ransomware attacks to keep increasing in the coming years. SafetyDetectives is a group of security experts who focus on testing antivirus programs, password managers, and other cybersecurity software. They predict that by the end of 2021, the financial strain from ransomware will be as much as $20 billion per year.
