ON-DEMAND WEBINAR: Why XDR is not enough to stop ransomware attacks

Ransomware attacks are no longer an “if”

Since the advent of CryptoLocker in 2013, ransomware has become a major drain on businesses, affecting their survival. 56% of businesses have been hit over the past year, with 42% of them losing data. It’s no longer a matter of if a ransomware attack will occur – it’s when! 

So how do you defend yourself in the midst of this pandemic? One of the most potent defenses is early detection of ransomware and prevention of lateral spread. And in order to do this – you need to understand the threat landscape.

Watch this webinar with Elastio’s Chief Scientist Srinidhi Varadarajan and Recorded Future’s Senior Security Architect Allan Liska for an overview of the threat landscape and a dive into the different types and approaches of the threat actors and groups – so you can be ready.

You’ll learn:

  • The top threat access vectors so that you can prioritize your ransomware protection efforts
  • How groups differ in their processes, from very structured (LockBit) to anarchal (Scattered Spider) – and why you need to understand both
  • The steps you need to take to ensure that your security posture is set to effectively defend your organization against attacks
