Ransomware: What to Expect and How to Defend Against It

At some point, any business connected to the internet is likely to become a victim of a ransomware because they are relatively easy and inexpensive to carry out, but potentially yield large payouts for cybercriminals. The best way of tackling this threat is to know how to break the attack chain.

Join security experts from KuppingerCole Analysts and BeyondTrust to find out why digital transformation has massively increased the attack surface, what you need to know about ransomware, why it appears to be winning, and how to create effective defenses against it.
