For a while now, ransomware has been on the radar of cybersecurity teams. But in 2020, there was a sevenfold increase in activity, meaning it’s now a favorite attack of hackers. It doesn’t cost much, the barrier to entry is low, and it offers high profits; this combination ensures that ransomware will continue to be a favorite attack of hackers. Cybercriminals who launch ransomware attacks will do so more often — and the trend will continue.
Ransomware has become more sophisticated and widespread, but there are some ways to reduce the chance of becoming a victim. Creating a plan before the ransomware occurs can be the difference between a successful attack and one that wreaks havoc on an organization. Time is critical during such attacks, so it’s important to do more than just plan for them.
This video will explain the steps that security leaders need to take to mitigate the impacts of ransomware. We will cover subjects including how preparing employees to avoid risk and what to do if a ransomware attack occurs, as well as what technology is best suited to help protect against ransomware attacks.
