Financial organizations continue to face the constant threat of a ransomware attack. The increasing rate of these attacks demonstrates that adversaries have become considerably more capable of executing attacks at scale by successfully deploying the ransomware-as-a-service model. We discuss the various factors driving financial organizations to improve their cyber defense including cyber insurance, and the role of regulators within the industry.
