The Ransomeware Dilemma

  1. Equally obvious, but maybe not as prominent is that there’s no guarantee that you’ll get your data back or that the extortionists won’t publish your secrets anyway. Then you’re screwed, and out a lot of money. In recent times ransomware operators have become adept at providing customer service and making sure you get your data back. This may make you hopeful, but it’s not a guarantee and every group is completely different in their reputation and dealings. Some gangs are out for just the money, some are out for espionage, and some are out for something else. But there’s one sure thing, and that is that there is no guarantee.
