Panel 3: Ransomware – Defending Against a Persistent Threat
Session Time: 3:25 PM – 4:10 PM CDT
“Pay Up, or Else.” The number of organizations facing this scenario has been steadily increasing over the past several years as ransomware attacks continue to rise — both in numbers and the size of payouts.
The clear and present danger of a ransomware attack looms large among cyber executives and business leaders as the number of vulnerabilities increases daily. According to a 2022 CRA Business Intelligence survey, nearly one in four respondents reported that their organization experienced one or more ransomware attacks in the past 12 months, and almost one out of three of these organizations said the attacker succeeded in gaining access to their systems, encrypting files, and demanding a ransom.
According to this survey, many believe that the worst is yet to come and that they are at a significantly higher risk of a cyberattack than ever before – it’s not a matter of “if,” but “when.”
Preparing for the inevitable and defending against the threat of a ransomware attack requires constant evaluation and assessment and then making the necessary adjustments.
On this panel, our lineup of industry experts will discuss the key security measures enterprises must take, going beyond backup and recovery and anti-malware/anti-virus solutions to include endpoint security, vulnerability management, Active Directory monitoring, credential protection, DNS security tools, SIEM, DLP and encryption, and cloud security software.
