The Long Road Ahead to Ransomware Preparedness

15th March 2023, Europe 15:00 - 16:30 CET

What does preparation look like in the current reality of today’s market?

If it seems like another ransomware attack is in the news every time you look, that’s because it is! In the last year, 79% of organizations report at least one attempted ransomware attack. Not every attack is a success for the hackers, but when a company is breached, the news gets even more dire. 86% of organizations that have been victimized by a successful ransomware attack in the last 12 months and paid a ransom failed to recover all their data (according to ESG).

No wonder the threat of ransomware is top of mind for so many organizations. Even still, few companies say they feel totally prepared for an attack. So, what are best-in-class organizations doing to shield the enterprise? Is there a blueprint for ransomware protection?

Join thought leaders from Hitachi, along with a select group of your peers, as we discuss strategies to drive resiliency, prepare for today’s cyber-security risks, and dive into the role recovery must play.
