What’s driving ransomware attacks and how should you respond?

It’s only hype until it happens to you.

Imagine losing access to all of your data, only to find out you are being extorted by criminals who require payment to get it back. These attacks have cut across every industry — healthcare, education, finance — and are driving a flurry of questions about what is the right response.

Gartner is at the forefront of helping customers develop strategies for tackling malware, including ransomware. There are steps you can take to actively reduce the number of ransomware infections across your organization.

Hear from Peter Firstbrook, a leading authority on endpoint and server protection strategies and VP of Research at Gartner and Cisco Umbrella CTO, Dan Hubbard. Peter and Dan will address the explosion of ransomware in the market and the simplest way for security practitioners to stay ahead of these attacks.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Preempt, contain and mitigate ransomware infections across your organization.
  • Use threat intelligence to identify and predict attacker infrastructures used in ransomware attacks.
  • Best practices to protect your company, your employees and your data against the risk of ransomware.

Watch now to go beyond the hype and see why a resurgence in ransomware is changing how organizations enforce security.
