Education needs to study up on fighting ransomware

Tim Greene | Sept. 22, 2016
Schools rank worst at ransomware hit rate, security in general, study says.

“Using a patented network mapping process, BitSight has mapped more than 54,000 companies. For this study, we focused on six industries, analyzing 18,996 organizations across Finance, Healthcare, Education, Energy/Utilities, Retail, and Government. We measured ransomware infections using data collected and aggregated from several sources. We monitored ransomware infections emanating from these industries using data collected over the last 12 months from organizations that BitSight has mapped and curated. It is important to note that although we can confirm the existence of ransomware infections, we cannot confirm if files within an organization were encrypted or whether or not a ransom was paid.”
