About this talk

In the previous year, various organizations have been plagued by ransomware attacks which have brought devastating consequences on industries. Ransomware is a type of malicious computer virus designed by cybercriminals to immobilize users from accessing their systems by encrypting their infected data, until a ransom is paid. What is even more alarming is not just the rapid proliferation of this extortionate hacking, but its relentless evolution putting larger and more profitable businesses and institutions in great ordeal. Recent surveys also show that these ransomware attacks will continue to grow as cybercriminals are getting more aggressive in developing new and sophisticated threats. Thus, it is imperative for companies to remain vigilant and proactive in setting up new security and back-up mechanisms that can easily detect and prevent these attacks. It also pays to reassess their policies and procedures in place to fend off regulatory and operational risks. In this Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an overview of the latest trends and critical issues with respect to the increasing risks brought by ransomware.
