Just how dangerous is ransomware?

Ransomware is a top threat to businesses today. This form of malware holds files or systems hostage until a payment is made, usually by encrypting files or marking them for permanent deletion. Attacks occur randomly and without warning, often with a clear ransom demand displayed through computer screens. 2017 has seen the largest attacks to date - the WannaCry and Petya global attacks took down thousands of organizations' IT systems across the globe including the U.S. In 2016, ransomware attacks netted over $1 billion from businesses and it's growing at a yearly rate of 350%.
