Water Sector Cyber Threat Web Briefing - Ransomware 3.0: What You Need to Know

Wednesday, January 26, 2022, 2:00 – 3:00 PM ET

Ransomware is one of the biggest threats today. There is a reason more than half of today’s ransomware victims end up paying the ransom: cyber-criminals have become thoughtful, taking time to maximize your organization’s potential damage and their payoff. After achieving root access, the bad guys explore your network, reading email and finding data troves. Once they know you, they craft a plan to cause the most panic, pain, and operational disruption. But as bad as ransomware is today, it's likely to get worse. Yet there are a few things you can do (things you should already be doing) to prevent ransomware attacks from being successful. Our presenter - Roger A. Grimes, Data-Driven Defense Evangelist for the cybersecurity firm KnowBe4 and author of Wiley's Ransomware Protection Playbook - will tell you what you need to know.

This presentation will dive into:

  • Why data backups alone won’t save you
  • The evolving threat
  • Why ransomware isn’t your real problem
  • What you need to prevent a successful attack
