Top Tips: What You Can Learn From a City’s Recovery From Ransomware

Presented by

Brett Foy, Global Vice President, Sales Engineering at Datrium and Joshua Cocos, Technical Support Team Lead at Datrium

About this talk

Like dozens of cities, hospitals, and enterprise companies before it, a midwestern city was hit by ransomware. The cybercriminals deployed malware that encrypted the city's files, and the Governer was close to declaring a state of emergency. However, unlike other businesses that had to shut down for weeks, go out of business, or pay their attackers hundreds of thousands of dollars, this city was able to recover from ransomware quickly and without paying their attacker a dime. Join us for a webcast, where you'll hear from the Datrium engineer who worked with the city's IT team and the FBI to help them quickly recover. You’ll learn how to: - Quickly identify the signs of an attack - Restore your systems with a clean, golden image - Protect critical virtual machines by establishing protection groups - Create your backup and retention strategy to ensure a low RPO You’ll also hear about Datrium’s new Ransomware Prevention and Recovery Guide. We built this detailed guide based on our expertise, plus the experience we gained working with the FBI and helping dozens of customers successfully recover from ransomware attacks.
