Osirium research finds UK businesses vulnerable to ransomware attacks

Osirium Technologies plc (AIM: OSI), a leading vendor of cloud-based cybersecurity software, has today released findings from a research report it has undertaken, suggesting many UK businesses are not sufficiently protecting their critical IT recovery systems should a cyber-attack occur.

The Osirium Ransomware Index surveyed 1,001 IT managers in the UK and found that 80% of businesses rely on backups (whereby a copy of computer data is taken and stored elsewhere) as a plan of recovery should a cyber-attack occur. Yet despite this reliance, only a minority take extra precautions of using privileged access management to protect their backups, leaving the bulk of UK businesses vulnerable to attack, as our report highlights.

Key findings of the report:

- Overall, 79% (4 in 5 businesses) surveyed admitted that they have experienced at least one ransomware attack, with 68% of these stating the attack occurred in the past year.

- Despite 98% of respondents saying they were aware that backups are a target of ransomware attacks, over half do not keep offline backups and only 35% take extra precautions to protect access to backups and backup management systems.

David Guyatt, CEO of Osirium, commented: "Cyber-attacks on UK businesses remain a very real threat and unfortunately is an everyday occurrence for organisations across all sectors with potentially profound consequences. Our report highlights the degree of vulnerability that persists, with 58% of UK businesses surveyed only feeling 'somewhat prepared' for the eventuality of a ransomware attack. M any businesses know they need to bolster their backup protection, and this awareness continues to drive new opportunities for our privileged access management solutions."
