What is the True Cost of Ransomware? Don’t Confuse Cost for Impact

The true effects of ransomware expand far beyond the initial disruption and subsequent ransom payment. While the costs of a ransomware attack on an organization are too disruptive to leave to a single product or AI behavioral model. This infographic breaks down the how the attack's ransom is just the impact epicenter of the blast radius set in motion. The impact of an attack can be felt for months if not quarters, and cannot only sideline a business, it can potentially end your business.


  • According to Forbes, the average ransomware payment is “north of $300,000,*" though we’ve seen reports that the actual average amount is greater.
  • Only 8% of paying ransomware victims got keys and actually recovered their data.
  • Average downtime due to an attack is 21 days, independent of recovery. (Recovery averages 287 days.)
