 A Step-by-Step Guide to Understanding Ransomware Recovery

 The evolution of ransomware and how to fight it with IT resiliency


 08:45-10:00 CET

 Thursday 10 February 2022 
 Virtual Event - Taking Place on Zoom 

Join Hitachi Vantara and a select group of industry experts for a need-to-know update on the latest developments in ransomware. We’ll then unpack the steps organisations can take to strategise and deliver a ransomware recovery plan that’s fit for the future. 

Around the world, organisations are grappling with ‘a pandemic of a different variety’. Ransomware is rapidly evolving and increasingly allowing attackers to avoid traditional anti-virus protections and IT defences. As a result, 2021 has seen a surge in ransomware attacks. 

These sophisticated attacks are having widespread ramifications for organisations. Not only can ransomware attacks lock out employees from accessing crucial data for days, weeks or months, but the long-term financial and reputational implications can be crippling for previously prospering businesses. 

To protect against the threat, data-rich businesses must ensure they have a rigorous IT resiliency programme in place with a fortified last line of defence.  

When was the last time you reviewed your recovery plan? If you haven't done so recently, our virtual roundtable is a must-attend.
