Ransomware Survey Says… Active Directory is Under Attack and Needs Attention

Authored by: Carolyn Crandall, Chief Security Advocate – The CyberRisk Alliance (CRA) published a new report titled “State of Ransomware: Invest now or pay later.” The report, which Attivo Networks sponsored, highlighted new findings from a January 2022 research study on the continuing escalation of ransomware attacks and what organizations are doing about it. It emphasized that while much of the research around ransomware has focused on so-called “Big Game” attacks on primary targets, organizations of any size—and within any industry—are potential targets.
