Recovery from a ransomware attack: How to prepare and plan to minimize risk

Presented by

Allan Cytryn, Principal | Risk Masters International

About this talk

Ransomware is an omnipresent threat to every business. A comprehensive defense and recovery plan is an essential requirement for managing and mitigating this risk. Such a plan must take a 360-degree view of the enterprise’s risk as well as identify and address the many uncertainties faced by victims of ransomware. This presentation from Risk Masters International's Allan Cytryn will provide this 360-degree view. Participants will come away understanding the ransomware risk vectors, the options for addressing them, and the limits of their effectiveness. Recovery is a key component of risk mitigation. Relevant options and alternatives will be discussed. In addition, attendees will learn the the operational lifecycle of a ransomware attack – from anticipatory risk mitigation, to attack, then to recovery, and finally resumption of normal operations. Recovery planning is only effective if conducted in this broader context.
