As the number of people working remotely grows, so do security risks. Cyber attacks surged during the pandemic and continue to threaten more businesses, no matter their size.
For many organizations, taking the right steps to ensure the protection of data and assets seems to be a moving target. But there are actions you can take to prevent zero day vulnerabilities from growing into mass compromise ransom events.
The ‘New Normal’ is far more Tech-Driven which is presenting more and bigger challenges:
- More remote working and remote access
- Increased reliance on the cloud—for everything from business operations to shopping
- Rising threat activity and more sophisticated threat actors
- Business and financial risk at an all-time high
The new normal demands that we have strong, trusted defenses and we confront threats with resilience, agility, and innovation. We must anticipate, validate, and assure our security. And we must choose tech partners who have the mindset and don’t give up, never lay down their guard, and always strive for better.
Join us as we discuss the cybercrime impacts on businesses targeted with ransomware and some of the long reaching effects. We will also examine an ‘assume-breach mindset’ and why it’s critical to adopt in the age of rampant attacks and as with all ransomware activity, there are basic steps an organization can take to protect itself before and after such an event.
The cloud leaders from MR2 Solutions, RapidScale, and Trust Wave will discuss the current threats both from domestic and international threats and provide insights on how to change our approach to these threats.
