It used to be that we would only have to worry about losing all of our data if we suffered a massive system crash. Now, the fear of having your information held hostage by threat actors demanding payment is just as common. Since paying the ransom is no guarantee that all of the data will be recovered and remediation costs can be thousands of dollars, one would almost prefer a system failure.
