By now, you’ve likely seen alarming headlines about “ransomware.” It’s an encryption tool that hackers use to lock an organization’s computer files or systems while demanding steep ransom payments to restore access, and attacks are becoming increasingly common for both large and small organizations. In this on-demand webinar, Lucas Bobroff, staff data architect for Pure Storage, offers an introduction to this growing global threat and discusses what businesses should do about it.
In this one-hour webinar, you’ll learn:
- What ransomware is and how it works.
- Why all organizations may be vulnerable to ransomware attacks and what steps they can take to prevent them.
- How to prepare for and respond to a ransomware threat.
- How to recover quickly from a ransomware attack.
