ISMG’s Virtual Roundtables focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Virtual Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal and online setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
A New Game Plan to Combat Ransomware Attacks
We are in the midst of a ransomware pandemic. The list of victims is long and only growing – City of Liège, Maastricht University, Kaseya, Colonial Pipeline, to name a few. Whilst traditional antivirus and endpoint detection and response tools, along with user education, are part of the solution, they’re not always enough to prevent ransomware from infecting and spreading within organizations’ networks.
So how do we avoid being the next victim? What is being overlooked in our current defenses? How are the attackers succeeding despite our defenses? It’s time for a new game plan.
Register for this executive roundtable for new insights and discussion about:
- Proactive strategies to avoid being the next ransomware victim
- Techniques to best detect and respond to attacks targeting endpoints
- Recommendations to achieve greater threat coverage and visibility of attacks
