In December 2022, Example Corp fell victim to a sophisticated ransomware attack that encrypted critical data across multiple departments. The attackers demanded a substantial ransom for the decryption keys. Despite attempts to recover the data through backups, significant operational disruptions were unavoidable. Customer service, billing, and logistics were especially hard-hit, leading to delays and financial losses. The company initiated an emergency response protocol, involving law enforcement and cybersecurity experts, to manage the situation and mitigate impacts. This incident highlights the rising trend of ransomware attacks targeting core business operations to maximize pressure on victims to pay ransom demands.
