Ransomware does not appear to have fallen victim to the pandemic. On the contrary, successful attacks appear to have increased and the impacts are escalating too. Hardly a day goes by without news of another ransomware attack on a prominent organisation or further details of a previous attack are shared. Has the massive increase in remote working improved the success rate, have organised crime groups switched focus from other income streams that have been hit? Maybe, but answering those questions probably won't give you actionable insights into what you need to do to protect your assets.

Join us as we discuss how you can prepare for a ransomware attack and whether paying should ever be considered.
