Cyber-attacks are nearly inevitable for organisations of any size. Protecting datacentres was hard enough, but with remote workers, distributed offices, and cloud-hosted infrastructure and services, the threat landscape can seem impossible to adequately protect. This webinar will bring three industry experts together to discuss Computing’s research findings on this topic. It will explore:
Planning for Pervasiveness – it’s going to be worse than you think, which should be framing your preparedness strategy.
Paying the Ransom won’t fix it – we’ll look at lessons learned from ransom remediation and prevention, which technology methods were attempted and where they were successful, as well as what to plan for.
Organisational alignment – multiple teams are necessary for both prevention and remediation, we’ll discuss their alignment and what to consider for improvement, as well as how IT leaders are integrating their disaster plans.
