About this webinar:
It is difficult to deny that ransomware is one of the most significant threats organisations’ cyber defences are currently facing. According to recent research by Computing, 57 percent of participating organisations believe that both the volume and severity of ransomware attacks are increasing. Furthermore, 32 percent said the nature of attacks are making them harder to detect and remediate.
Backup data is the ultimate prize for an adversary looking to profit from a ransomware attack, as encrypting endpoint data makes recovery more difficult, with organisations facing a costly and time-consuming task when they attempt to restore data. If backup data is encrypted during an attack, organisations are therefore more likely to bow to pressure and pay ransoms, further fuelling the industry.
In this context, ensuring backups are truly immutable should be a vital part of organisations’ cyber security strategy as having a backup alone is no longer enough. While primary storage systems need to be accessible, immutability means that it is impossible for backup data to be deleted, encrypted or modified, meaning there is a version of the data that cannot be touched, and can be recovered in any scenario, be it malicious activity or accidental deletion.
The following webinar, supported by bespoke research, will explore how many organisations have already adopted, and understand the benefits of, truly immutable backups, and what businesses should be looking for in backup providers that support immutability. It will delve into the importance of incorporating immutability into backup architecture to ensure it is well protected against the evolving threat landscape and how organisations can recover quickly in the event of a successful attack.
