Of course Cyber insurance companies want the client to pay the extortionist, this then increases the premiums the client has to be pay for not being prepared the first time around.
Will it get worst?
I suspect it will get worse instead of better. It's like a few years ago when we saw a tremendous jump in the number of virus' coming at us on a daily basis.....sometimes five and six virus' a day and those kept morphing into something new.
So personally, I think, once folk stop paying the Ransom's and take all the steps that we previously outlined, the criminals, might get tired and move on.............;(. Now them moving on may be even more frightening....
