The SpyCloud Ransomware Defense Report 2022

An annual benchmark of organizations’ preparedness and strategies to close the gaps

2022 Ransomware Defense Report Preview

Our annual survey of 300+ security leaders in the US, Canada, and UK revealed that despite 86% increasing budget to protect against ransomware, 90% of organizations reported being affected by ransomware in the last 12 months – leaving security teams with little confidence in their defenses.

But there is hope. With credentials at the forefront of protecting employee identities, we were intrigued to find multi-factor authentication (MFA) in use at almost all organizations and that monitoring for compromised credentials saw a significant increase year-over-year, from 44% to 73%. And with the increased severity and frequency of malware infections, a majority of respondents agree that credential-stealing malware – especially on unmanaged devices accessing the network – is a growing concern as a hard-to-detect entry point for ransomware.
