Cybereason published a global research report, titled Ransomware: The True Cost to Business, which revealed that the vast majority of organizations that have suffered a ransomware attack experienced significant impact to the business as a result. The consequences included loss of revenue, damage to the organization’s brand, unplanned workforce reductions, and disruption of business operations. 

Cybereason released follow-up research, titled Organizations at Risk: Ransomware Attackers Don’t Take Holidays, that focuses on the threat that ransomware attacks during the weekends and holidays poses to organizations. The global survey includes responses from 1,200+ security professionals at organizations that have previously suffered a successful ransomware attack.

Key topics for the session to include:

  • How Ransomware attackers are leveraging holidays and weekends for maximum impact
  • Why holiday/weekend ransomware attacks take longer to respond to and recover from, and why they result in more disruption and losses for targeted organizations
  • Why defenders believe ransomware attacks against their organizations were successful
  • Steps organizations across key verticals are taking to better prepare for weekend and holiday ransomware attacks
  • Recommendations from seasoned Security Operations Center (SOC) on how to better defend against ransomware attacks during these vulnerable periods
