Extortion and Ransomware: What You Need to Know

The business of the cyberattack has matured into a billion dollar industry. Forrester even predicts the devastating effects of a cyberbreach will lead to the failure of a Fortune 1000 company in 2017 (Predictions 2017: Cybersecurity Risks Intensify, November 2016, Forrester). Extortion-based attacks like ransomware were rampant in 2016, and in 2017 we're seeing an explosion of new variations. These new types of threats are now delivered as a service and are more financially driven than ever before.

Attend this session to hear Joseph Blankenship of Forrester and Michael Sutton of Zscaler discuss how companies are being extorted with attacks like ransomware and learn strategies to safeguard your organization.
