About this talk

No organization is immune to a ransomware attack. In recent months, nearly half of all malware blocked by Mimecast for its 20,000 customers has been ransomware. The motivation to pay can be strong, particularly given issues such as criticality of business assets, digital infrastructure, or even safety of life in some cases – but a far better strategy is to be prepared for the threat, before ransomware strikes. How ready is your organization to face a ransomware attack? Join Scott Crawford, Research Director of information Security at 451 Research, and Matthew Gardiner, Senior Product Marketing Manager with Mimecast to explore: -The impact of ransomware: Just how serious a threat is it? -How could ransomware get into your organization? -Why is ransomware happening more now than ever before? -How can you best defend against a ransomware attack…before it locks up your critical information assets?
