More about the webinar:

Clearly, ransomware attacks aren’t going to stop anytime soon, and malicious actors are bent on exploiting the situation that the global pandemic has put employee workforces in. Working on unsecured networks, in unsupervised conditions, employees working out of homes tend to be an easy target for ransomware attackers.

This grim situation is further intensified with the advent of Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS). This new development in the ransomware delivery model has taken ransomware threats to a whole new level. Do It Yourself (DIY) ransomware kits are freely available on the dark net allowing anybody to create and release new ransomware variants on an unsuspecting public.  In fact, a recent report states that total ransomware revenues in 2020 were around $20 billion, up from $11.5 billion the previous year.

Considering the financial losses and potential harm to an organization’s reputation, it is imperative for enterprises to take proactive steps to not only prevent ransomware attacks, but also know how to defend themselves should they become a victim. So, join us in this webinar and we will take a deep dive into:

  • The Impact of the pandemic on Ransomware attacks
  • Understanding the concept of Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS)
  • Data backup strategy built to deal with Ransomware attacks
  • Important considerations for a good backup solution
