, as they discuss the threat of ransomware and share insights on how organizations can prepare in advance against such threats.
Ransomware attacks are one of the most dangerous cybercriminal threats that companies face – a successful ransomware compromise can bring a business to a complete stop, and in some cases, can shutter it permanently. The current situation is no different. In March 2020, ransomware attacks increased 148%
over the baseline of February 2020, as remote work increased by 70%, according to VMWare Carbon Black threat researchers.
