There were over 200,000 successful ransomware attacks in 2019 with the average payment spiking to over $190K*. Ransomware gangs now use agile development in a SaaS model to generate more variants faster than ever. They're even now using PR and media to shame their victims and threaten public release of sensitive data in addition to holding it hostage. Frequently they're never caught because they're offshore in countries w/no extradition agreements. Ransomware works. Victimized organizations are forced to pay up. A lot and sometimes more than once.
Come to our next Truth In Data Protection event in which our expert industry analyst, Mike Matchett from Small World Big Data, will discuss the Truths About Ransomware, and then interview 3 leading data protection vendors about their clients experiences, perspectives and recommendations to prevent & recover from successful Ransomware attacks (because if you have data, you will be attacked!). We'll cover:
~ How can your data backup and storage infrastructure remain clean and help you recover from ransomware attacks?
~ How do you know you can recover if you are hit?
~ What are some of the ways you can harden your backup/storage environment?
