The recent increase in doxxing, the deliberate and malicious leaking of stolen data, by ransomware actors has pulled back the curtain on extortion victims. In doing so, cyber criminals have offered the cyber security industry a chance to better monitor ransomware trends and draw lessons for the future from them.
Between February and May this year, Kivu analyzed the location and industry of over 140 doxxed ransomware victims. Our findings, paired with those from widely published reports and our own historical data, reveal surprising trends among industries and ransomware variants – and hint at ways in which organizations worldwide can protect themselves from attacks.
