Cyber Resilience – Enhancing Data Recovery In The Age Of Ransomware 

The cost of cyber-crime to businesses in New Zealand is on the increase as new figures show growing levels of ransomware attacks, scams and fraud. In 2019, ransomware attacks cost businesses and the public sector over $41 million, not including the downtime costs from each event.    

As companies adjust to this ‘new normal’ of sustained and sophisticated cyberattacks, security strategies are moving from cyber prevention to cyber resilience, creating environments that minimise what hackers can see and the impacts ransomware can have on businesses.

With today’s technological advancements, IT leaders can now achieve a rapid business recovery without the need to compromise data – maximising security, minimising complexity and eliminating costly downtime.

  • How can businesses become more resilient by enhancing data recovery?
  • In today’s risky environment, what are the best ways of protecting companies’ data from sophisticated cyber-attacks?
  • How can businesses cost-effectively reduce the impact of a cyberattack and get operations up and running again as quickly as possible?
