A report saying the bleeding obvious

I, and others here, have said many times that if insurance did not pay ransomware then companies would be forced to up their game.

Yes: it would hurt a few that did not get the message, but after a couple of bankruptcies other companies would start to take it seriously - not just try to blame others.

If this is not done then the pain will persist for many years, this will not stop it but should make it much harder for the crooks.
