Increase in ransomware attacks on IOM businesses

The government is urging organisations hit by ransomware attacks not to make payments to criminals.

The Office of Cyber Security and Information Assurance says there's been an increase in attacks on Island businesses, with 6 reported this year, though it's estimated to be higher.

Government will not agree to ransom or demands made by terrorists or criminals and asks residents and businesses to take the same stance.

Anyone hit by a ransomware attack should contact OCSIA on 01624 685557.
