With a ransomware attack occurring every 11 seconds, it really is a case of not if but when.
As with other cyber threats, its best to assume the enemy is already metaphorically in the building just waiting for an opportune moment to pull the trigger.
What makes ransomware different to other cyber threats, though is the extent of the damage it can do as it explodes outwards across the network from its initial activation point. Within a few short minutes hundreds or thousands of devices can be rendered useless while the attackers pillage critical data for sale or blackmail purposes. In contrast, repairing the damage can take weeks or even months.
Organisations, therefore, need to contain the infection and reduce the blast radius. The attackers may have broken into the building, but to get at core systems and critical data they need to get into the vault.
Join us for this web seminar in which we'll be looking at operational resilience in the face of the ransomware threat. We'll discuss the best ways to reduce the impact of a ransomware attack and to get back to normal in the shortest possible time.
