Cybereason to Host CISO Roundtable on Ransomware Attacks and the True Cost to Business

Jul 27, 2021

Cybereason, the leader in operation-centric attack protection, will host a virtual CISO Roundtable, Thursday, July 29, 2021, 1:00 pm ET/10:00 am PT, to discuss the findings from the company’s recent global ransomware study, titled Ransomware: The True Cost to Business. Among the report’s key findings are that 65 percent of organizations hit by a ransomware attack report significant revenue loss, and 80 percent of attack victims who paid the ransom demands were hit by a second ransomware attack.

The roundtable will bring together verteran security executives across the technology, government and finance services industries to examine these and other findings from the study. Discussion topics include:

--Whether organizations should ever consider paying a ransom demand

--If organizations have the right people, processes and policies in place to address the risk posed by ransomware attacks

--The wide-reaching impacts to the business following a successful ransomware attack

--Whether organizations are making the right investments in security prior to a ransomware attack and where they are investing after being a victim
