Is ransomware an exponential threat to society?

Event date 21 July 2021 12:45 – 13:45

Location Virtual event

A supply chain ransomware attack brought chaos to a global IT solutions organisation and many of its customers on the 4th of July. This and other recent ransomware attacks are demonstrating a new level of sophistication with devastating consequences for businesses of all sizes.

Ransomware attacks can be incredibly stressful. Unlike previous strains that were opportunistic and relatively small in scope, modern ransomware targets entire organisations and uses sophisticated tactics to encrypt, destroy and steal data with little chance of recovery.

Prevention is the best form of defence, but no organisation can achieve total security against ransomware, so it’s important that you understand how to respond to an incident as effectively as possible. With this in mind, this virtual event will cover three key steps you should take following a ransomware attack.

It will cover these key questions:

1) Is ransomware an event we must now expect to happen?
2) Has the evolution of ransomware made protecting crown jewels data even more critical?
3) What can be done to address ransomware?
