September 29, 2022
10:00 am - 11:00 am PT

Summary:

Barracuda’s recently released Threat Spotlight: The Untold Stories of Ransomware, contains a wealth of information you can use to better understand and mitigate your organization’s level of ransomware risk. Attend this webinar to get a guided tour of its key insights and takeaways from Barracuda CTO, Fleming Shi and Principal Product Marketing Manager, Stasia Hurley.

Join us and discover:

  • Why healthcare and education experienced unusually sharp increases in ransomware attacks, amid an overall spike to 1.2 million attacks detected per month in the first half of 2022
  • How targeting small businesses can be an effective strategy for attackers seeking to penetrate and extort larger organizations such as vendors or other partners
  • Why VPN systems with inadequate authentication schemes continue to be one of the favored points of attack for ransomware criminals

Stasia and Fleming will also walk you through a detailed discussion of three different real-world ransomware attacks that took place in the past year, showing how attackers penetrated networks, how long they were able to reside undetected within their victims’ networks, and how victims responded to the incidents once they occurred.

And you’ll find out about specific ways to reduce your risk, including strengthening VPN access controls, effectively protecting backup systems, and implementing network segmentation.
