About this webinar:

Ransomware attacks are increasingly prevalent and sophisticated. Cybercriminals regularly cause organisations to grind to a halt when they extract and encrypt data. Many business leaders pay eye-watering ransoms to quickly restore operations, in the belief they can’t otherwise recover their data, or that doing so would take too long. However, modern backup solutions can comprehensively and quickly recover data.

Remediation is just as important as prevention when dealing with ransom attacks. After all, it’s a question of ‘not if but when’ you’ll be attacked. The damage to productivity, reputation, and financial standing can all be devastating.

Some organisations are resigned to paying ransom demands because they believe the onus falls on the business leader to act quickly, and that recovery is time consuming and difficult.

Worryingly, previous research demonstrates IT decision-makers responsible for choosing and implementing solutions view backup recovery as a secondary infrastructure. Conversely, there is also often widespread misguided confidence in organisations’ backups even though they often lack immutability features.

In this web seminar, supported by original research, we will explore how organisations are managing their backup, recovery and remediation, IT leader confidence in current systems, and the repercussions of ransomware attacks. We will also examine whether prevention and remediation strategies are being valued equally, and the extent to which organisations are using modern, immutable backup solutions they can truly depend on. Do security leaders today believe they can restore their data in a timely and cost-effective fashion?
