    Thank you for mentioning the Sophos State of Ransomware 2021 report. We also have the Sophos 2022 Threat Report available now, which covers: "The impact of Ransomware-as-a-Service".

  • Privilege access management and continuous visibility over what’s happening with your data to speed up the detection of a potential ransomware attack.

  • There is no doubt in my mind the best protection against ransomware (and all hackers and malware), in order are:

    1. Mitigate social engineering (using policies, technical defenses, and training)
    2. Patch exploited software
    3. Use different, strong passwords on every site and service
    4. Use non-phishable MFA where you can to protect valuable data and systems

    Nothing else comes close to these four defenses in preventing successful exploitation.

    The basics are the most effective.
