Incident response (IR) is when companies call in a team in the aftermath of a breach to limit the damage and prevent an attack from spreading. At Kaspersky, IR is handled by the Global Response Emergency Team (GERT) and is reserved for mid-size to large organizations. From January to November 2021, nearly every second security incident handled by GERT was connected to ransomware (nearly 50% of all IR requests)—an increase of nearly 12 percentage points when compared to 2020. This is among the most important findings from Kaspersky’s Story of the Year: Ransomware in the Headlines. Part of Kaspersky’s annual Security Bulletin series, which examines critical security trends over the past year, 2021’s Story of the Year takes an in-depth look at the current ransomware landscape and what to expect in 2022.
