Webinar December 1st: Ransomware Attackers Don’t Take Holidays

Cybereason recently released a research report, titled Organizations at Risk: Ransomware Attackers Don’t Take Holidays, that focuses on the threat that ransomware attacks during the weekends and holidays pose to organizations as we move into the holiday season. The global survey includes responses from 1,200+ security professionals at organizations that have previously suffered a successful ransomware attack.

Join us for this live webinar as we delve into new research findings about the risk to organizations from ransomware attacks that occur on weekends and holidays and how you can better prepare to defend against and respond to attacks designed to hit when your organization is most vulnerable.
