As per Gartner, “Ransomware attacks continue to increase. Bad actors have changed tactics, and are using techniques that are more sophisticated and targeted.” Also this “continues to pose a significant risk to organizations.”

“The cost of the resulting downtime in the aftermath of an attack, and the hit on an organization’s reputation, can amount to 10 times the cost of the ransom itself.”

In this report, you will learn how to help protect your organization against every stage of a ransomware attack, including how to: 

  • “Construct a pre-incident prevention strategy that includes data protection, immutable backup, and awareness training”
  • “Implement ransomware attack detection measures by deploying behavioral-anomaly-based detection policies”
  • “Build post-incident response procedures by training staff and scheduling regular training exercises”
