In recent news, Europe and the U.S. announced tough new sanctions meant to isolate Russia from the Western banking systems, cut off some of its natural gas market and punish Russian Oligarchs who could have any influence over Putin. After President Biden announced new sanctions on Russian banks and elites, the FBI issued a warning to U.S. businesses and local governments asking them to be mindful of the potential for Russian cyber attacks through the use of ransomware.

Can Your Business Be a Target of Russian Cyber Attack?

Unfortunately, small to medium businesses are often the target of ransomware and a Russian cyber attack is no exception. Ransomware attacks often result in unauthorized access to networks, proprietary data leaks and disruption of business operations. According to a Watchguard report on ransomware, research suggests the average cost of downtime for businesses in the small to medium space in 2019 was $141,000, resulting in a 200 percent increase year over year. Few small businesses could withstand such an attack.
