Ransomware today: The global threat to your organization
Dan Lohrmann, CSO, Security Mentor Inc.
Tony Pepper, CEO, Egress
Having increased by nearly 500% since the start of the pandemic, ransomware attacks are the fastest growing form of cybercrime. The average cost of one of these attacks has already doubled to $1.85m this year alone, and high-profile attacks can be even more damaging to organizations.
Email phishing is the primary method for criminals to deliver ransomware, and it's estimated that this is how 94% of attacks are delivered. Being able to stop the delivery of ransomware is the key to breaking the kill chain and stopping it for good. Unfortunately, threats have become even more sophisticated and traditional defense methods no longer provide the solution, so what can organizations do to protect themselves?
Join this fireside chat with Dan Lohrmann, CSO at Security Mentor Inc. and Tony Pepper, CEO at Egress as they discuss why and how ransomware is the global threat to your organization.
Watch now to learn more on:
Key drivers for the surge in cybercrime, and why the global threat landscape is getting worse
Why traditional solutions are failing to protect organizations from phishing and ransomware attacks
New approaches and advanced technologies that mitigate the risk of ransomware attacks
