The impact of cyberattacks in Latin America

In recent years , more than 51 % of companies in Latin America have suffered ransomware attacks . To address this scenario , Netdata explains how to deal with the impact of a cyberattack .

It is crucial that companies detect attacks before they become a real risk and before criminals turn business data into valuable assets . According to Netdata figures , 51 % of Latin American organizations have received a ransomware attack in the last two years because of the pandemic and digital acceleration , including the imposition of environments with weaker boundaries and less reliable connectivity .

It comprises everything from public network access to home services , among several other variables that have forced IT to sacrifice security to maintain productivity . The landscape has changed somewhat during the second half of 2022 .
However , according to Netdata , it can take up to six months for an organization to know it is under attack , and if successful , it can take up to 21 days to notice it . Netdata also estimates that 74 % of attacks go unnoticed by organizations .
How to respond ?
51 % of Latin American organizations have received a ransomware attack in the last two years because of the pandemic and digital acceleration .
For an attack , it is essential to remain vigilant . The proposal to implement a managed detection and response model , or MDR , is part of the alternatives currently considered to overcome threats .
The MDR model , such as Netdata ’ s Sentria , helps reduce the response time from weeks to minutes , containing an attack in about four hours instead of 21 days .
