How it Could Affect Your Customers’ Business: A ransomware preparedness plan is a veritable must-have for every organization since cybersecurity threats should be considered a “when”, not an “if” proposition.

These preventative measures are significantly more affordable than the cost of a ransom payment and the ancillary opportunity costs that accompany such an attack.
