The Acronis 2019 World Backup Day Survey revealed that 65.1% of consumers polled said either they or a family member lost data as a result of an accidental deletion, hardware failure or software problem – a jump of almost 30% from last year. Alarmingly, fewer than half of respondents are aware of the online attacks that threaten their data, such as ransomware (46%), cryptomining malware (53%) and social engineering attacks (52%) used to spread malware. Education on these dangers seems to be slow, as the number of consumers who know about ransomware only increased 4% since last year.
