New year, new ransomware threats—and new ways to protect your data

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

If it weren’t illegal, and extortionate, and mean-spirited, and devastating to its victims, and just plain wrong, you’d have to admit that ransomware is a great business to be in. What began years ago as a terrifying niche form of malware has truly taken the threat world by storm, establishing itself as one of the most reliably profitable ways for cyber-criminals to generate ill-gotten gains.

So even though it would be nice to report that ransomware is on the wane along with other 2020 ills, it’s not. New variants are appearing constantly, along with devious new ways of introducing these many variants into your network. The 2021 outlook for ransomware looks to be just as bad as it’s ever been, if not worse.

Fortunately, the good guys (that’s us) are keeping a sharp eye out for the latest ransomware developments, and updating strategies and technologies to keep us all safe.

You can—and should—learn all about it at an upcoming Barracuda webinar entitled “Ransomware in 2021: Protecting your data in the evolving threat landscape.”

This is a great opportunity to get important, up-to-the-minute news you can use, delivered by two of our rock stars: CTO Fleming Shi—who’s probably forgotten more than most pros will ever know about threat modalities and technical countermeasures—and Stasia Hurley, head of product marketing for all things data protection.

All kidding aside, ransomware really is a terrible threat. A successful attack can cripple your day-to-day operations and bring business screeching to a halt, throwing your organization into chaos and resulting in immense costs, both financial and reputational. So come to the webinar, get the latest on what to expect in the coming year, and find out how to fight back effectively against a threat that’s only getting worse as time passes.

Oh, and, um … Happy new year!
