Steps to Test Your Ransomware Readiness Posture

Presented by

Adam Mansour, Chief Security Officer, ActZero | Jim Skidmore, Vice-President - Solutions Group, intiGROW

About this talk

Most cyber defense teams are unaware of how much ransomware evolves over a 24-hour period, which is part of why ransomware "is present in almost 70% of malware breaches this year", according to Verizon's 2022 Databreach Investigations Report. It constantly evolves and targets to beat even the most popular tools and prevention methods. You've spent much of your cybersecurity efforts over the past few years, but how confident are you that your organization is ransomware ready? Have you run simulations that are up to date with emerging threats? If so, how recent? What did those tests tell you? What did you do next? Watch Adam Mansour, Chief Security Officer, and Jim Skidmore, Vice-President - Solutions Group at IntiGrow, in this webinar on-demand as they discuss the following concepts and how to assess them: - What are the essential concepts of Zero-Trust? At what point is 'Zero' or "least privilege"? - What roles can't Identity & Access Management play in ransomware protection?  - What goes into managing the effectiveness of your threat detection and response service (EDR, MDR, XDR, mXDR, WTHDR)?
