Did you hear the one about the guy who couldn’t remember his “unhackable” Gmail password, so he changed his name to 7sdf8dxz0sjh-3?

The estimated total cost of these attacks? $20 billion. “Back” in 2018, 39% of ransomware victims capitulated with the ransomers. This year, the number could be more like 58%. So the question becomes, how much of a share of that $20 billion might you be paying out if you’re systems aren’t secure enough?
