How to Survive a Ransomware Attack: An On-Demand Webinar

Reading time for this article .

 

“Ransomware is the gift that keeps on taking,” according to ESG Industry Analyst Christophe Bertrand, at the beginning of this thought-provoking webinar. Increasing aggressiveness of threat actors and the high cost of paying ransoms, combined with the lack of skillsets in IT departments is creating the perfect storm, and is the reason that one in five organizations are saying that cybersecurity is a top concern. ESG research shows that cybersecurity spend is leading IT budgets and learning how others have dealt with ransomware attacks is one way to figure out where to invest.

With 63% of organizations being impacted by ransomware attacks, it’s not hard to find these stories… but, it is hard to find an organization who is willing to share the specifics of the attack. Spectra Logic is one of those organizations. In this discussion, learn how Spectra Logic faced this worst-case scenario and recovered our data and systems without paying millions of dollars in ransom.

This exciting panel discussion is moderated by Enterprise Strategy Group and provides insights from Spectra’s IT Director Tony Mendoza, Fujifilm’s Head of Tape Evangelism Rich Gadomski, and Iron Mountain’s Director of Technology Services, Paul Luppino. This group also discusses the benefits of tape as part of an organization’s data protection strategy. You’ll hear about how to create air-gapped, immutable copies of data and how to approach intelligent archiving, as well as ways to strengthen ransomware resiliency and disaster recovery.
