About this talk

When it comes to securing your business against ransomware, it’s vital to understand what the ransomware threat looks like at all business levels. For example, 90% of ransomware attacks are initiated through corporate email, suggesting that leaders are not doing enough to provide their employees with the necessary tools and training to identify ransomware. But what are these necessary tools, and what can you do to secure your organisation against ransomware? Ransomware damages are predicted to cost $20 billion globally by 2021, according to Cybercrime Magazine. Given this acceleration, and the imminent threat to organisations around the world, what can we do to protect ourselves against this threat? From a loss of data, to downtime and loss of trust, ransomware poses a very real threat to today’s businesses, and as such, a proactive initiative is needed to protect and secure your organisation. Join us as we discuss: - The value of a 3-2-1 backup strategy - Email protection, application security and data protection - How to secure your VPNs, web applications and cloud traffic - Protecting your data in light of ransomware attacks - Cyber insurance options and common challenges Host: - Diana Kelley, CTO at SecurityCurve Speakers: - Charlie Smith, Consulting Solution Engineer at Barracuda - Steve Cobb, CISO at One Source - Shawn Bowen, CISO at World Fuel Services
