Ransomware attacks are pervasive, and having an impact. Readiness is essential to ransomware mitigation.

What you’ll learn:

  • Proactive and reactive measures organizations should follow to defend against the ransomware threat
  • Best practices and strategies from organizations that feel most prepared for a ransomware attack
  • What over 600 IT and cybersecurity professionals said about their ransomware readiness, prevention, response, and recovery

According to a new survey from ESG, 79% of organizations report having experienced a ransomware attack within the last year.1 There's no question why the threat of ransomware is top-of-mind for many organizations; however, few feel totally prepared for an attack today. Without any industry blueprints for ransomware protection, organizations are building their own strategies and processes to respond.

But with ransomware protection included in many different security and data protection solutions, it's easy to get confused about the scope of what should be included, who is responsible for implementation, and who to involve in the conversation. This research helps connect the dots between those organizations that feel most prepared and the specific strategies and plans used to get there, with an eye on defining best practices.
