A closer look at ransomware
Hosts Darshna Kamani and Stephanie Cavigliano will be speaking with Fleming Shi, Chief Technology Officer at Barracuda, and guest speaker, Forrester Senior Analyst Jessica Burn about the most recent trends in ransomware, how this threat has evolved, why the impact from this type of attack is growing rapidly, and how you need to adjust the way you protect against it to keep up.
Fleming and Jessica will be discussing:
- Findings from our third annual Threat Spotlight on ransomware
- How double extortion changes the ransomware threat
