Delivering Continuous Security Validation Against Ransomware

  • The challenges associated with ransomware but also proactive steps that can be taken to minimize the threat and fortify information security programs in organizations both large and small - regardless of their vertical industry
  • Real-world stories and obtain practical advice on how you can make ransomware a manageable threat that can be mitigated without impacting business operations. Automated, rigorous repeated testing
  • Where do your defenses succeed or fail?
