Title: Combating the Rapidly Evolving Ransomware Threat
Overview: Several highly publicized ransomware attacks on Ontario municipalities resulted in the OPP issuing a warning to all municipalities. To mitigate ransomware risk, the OPP recommends implementing a solution that protects their data from ransomware attacks.
What are your processes when ransomware strikes? It is a matter of when, not if. The statistics show that 7 out of 10 municipalities targeted will be struck. Ransomware has evolved. It now targets the very backups meant to defeat it by deleting backups. What are your procedures for stopping ransomware from deleting your backups before the ransomware detonates? Paying the ransom is a terrible outcome. An outcome the authorities strongly urge never to do. This is because once you pay, you will be targeted over and over again because you are now a known payer.
In this webinar you will learn:
· How ransomware infects, gets past security, gestates, defeats backups, and detonates
· The latest evolution of ransomware
· Best practices to thwart evolving ransomware
· What other cities are doing to protect their data
· What you can do today to provide immediate ransomware protection
