Now That Ransomware Has Gone Nuclear, How Can You Avoid Becoming the Next Victim?



GoneNuclear-OD-SocialThere 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, finding data troves and once they know you, they craft a plan to cause the most panic, pain, and operational disruption. Ransomware has gone nuclear.

Join us for this webinar where, Roger Grimes, KnowBe4’s Data-Driven Defense Evangelist, will dive into:

  • Why data backups (even offline backups) won’t save you
  • Evolved threats from data-theft, credential leaks, and corporate impersonation
  • Why ransomware isn’t your real problem
  • How your end users can become your best, last line of defense
