Ransomware Readiness Assessment

Defending against ransomware attacks starts with having a plan. The Unit 42™ Ransomware Readiness Assessment focuses on preparing you to better prevent, detect, respond to and recover from ransomware.

BENEFITS

Ransomware evolves constantly. So should you.


Ransomware groups are turning up the pressure on their victims – demanding higher ransoms and making sure organizations pay. According to the 2022 Unit 42 Ransomware Threat Report, our incident response casework shows ransom demands averaged US$2.2 million. Unit 42 can help you avoid the price of being unprepared based on lessons we’ve learned negotiating ransoms on the frontlines.
