As ransomware attacks become increasingly prevalent, organizations of all sizes are at risk of experiencing significant disruption and financial losses. While there is much focus on prevention of such attacks, there is relatively little discussion on recovery from an attack.

Ransomware attacks have become increasingly frequent, with one occurring every 11 seconds. Just during 2022, several high-profile organizations, including Cisco, The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), and Macmillan Publishers fell victim to ransomware attacks, resulting in the disruption of business operations and significant financial losses. It is therefore essential to have the conversation around what an organization should do if attacked, and how a comprehensive data resiliency strategy can help.

Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the key components required of a data resiliency strategy, that can assist in quick and effective recovery from a ransomware attack.
