We’ve got the presentation available for download here and the video will be ready shortly. In the meantime, feel free to contact us with your questions on Ransomware and how Layered Security – combined with end user training – can safeguard your business not only from ransomware but many of the threats modern organizations face every day.
The Bigger Picture
Ransomware attacks have grown dramatically over the last year, with new threat types appearing all the time. Learning how to protect yourself can also be a very confusing prospect, with no fewer than fifty different types of software vendors and hardware manufacturers who are very vocally telling you to buy their solution, it’s the last security investment you’ll ever need to make. While each have their merits, implementing a sustainable protection strategy for your business from an evolving threat like ransomware requires a look at all aspects of your technology, processes and training. Buying multiple pieces of software will do no good if your systems policies are weak, or your passwords are insecure. Bottom line is your business needs more than just a point solution for security. It’s when training, processes, policies and point solutions work in conjunction that you really get layered security coverage.
A layered defense strategy that protects, detects and responds to threats is the only sustainable long term strategy to both preventing and reacting to breaches.
