Prevention Approach to Ransomware

In today’s threat landscape, cyberattacks have become highly targeted and specifically designed to be undetectable – notably Ransomware. The goal is to breach the network perimeter by delivering malware that moves across an organization and extract valuable data—all this while remaining invisible to traditional network defenses.

These invisible attacks are the biggest nightmare for many IT executives and CSOs. They make it very difficult for IT executives and CSOs to develop security strategy with a tangible return to prevent attacks, without knowing what they are. Very often organizations are not aware they are being breached until it is too late.

At this luncheon, you will be able to gain insight on how to efficiently and cost-effectively confront threats at different phase of the attack by building an integrated and multi-layered threat prevention strategy.
