In fact, just this year alone, the average cost of a ransomware attack has been $1.85 million. The National Health Service (NHS) recently experienced a $100 million loss after being hit with the WannaCry ransomware attack. The first half of 2022 saw nearly 236.7 million ransomware attacks worldwide.

During this session, we will discuss some concrete, real-world tactics for presenting your best defense against ransomware as well as how to remediate an attack when one does occur.
