Stop Ransomware Before it Stops Business

Ransomware will cost global organizations $20 billion in 2021 and is on track to reach $265 billion by 2031. Not only does it have a financial impact, but it damages reputation and opens the door to repeated attacks.

Learn how a proactive cyber defense can stop cyber threats before they stop business operations. In this session, we will cover the stages of a ransomware attack and the tools and techniques you need to safeguard your IT environment from device-to-cloud. You will learn how to:


  • Find threats and adversaries lurking in your environment.
  • Use deception to trap advanced adversaries, keep them away from assets, study their behavior and quickly neutralize threats.
  • Prevent adversaries from using what they know about your environment to return and repeat.
