SYNOPSIS

Human-operated ransomware campaigns pose a pervasive and significant threat to businesses and represent one of the most impactful trends in cyberattacks today.

The evolving threat landscape has highlighted how attackers are refining their tactics and techniques, and just how far they’re willing to go to disrupt organisations.

We know that the decision on whether to pay, or not to pay a ransom causes much debate, and executives are under mounting pressure to restore services as quickly as possible.

But dealing with ransomware shouldn’t feel like a game of chance.

In this session, Sarah Armstrong-Smith will explore the priorities for deploying ransomware protection, and will walk through a mitigation plan to help prevent, and recover from extortion-based attacks.
