The act of ransom is a tale as old as time. However, the business of extortion can be conducted in a far more sophisticated manner than when Julius Caesar was held for ransom by pirates. Nowadays attackers can use ransomware to gain and withhold access to an organization’s data, threatening to either destroy or publicly publish it unless a ransom is paid.
To make matters worse, there is no guarantee the data will actually be returned. The results of these attacks are often devastating, and recovery can cost far more than the initial ransom when you factor in loss of productivity, damage to the reputation, lost business and more.
Watch this webinar with cybersecurity experts Bob Erdman, Security Product Manager at Fortra, and Holger Schulze, CEO and Founder of Cybersecurity Insiders, where they discuss the continuing challenge of ransomware. They explore motivations and perpetrators of attacks, who’s most at risk, and the most effective solutions to this pervasive problem to help you better understand ransomware and reduce the large threat it poses.
