Join Josh King, Carousel’s Director of Security Solutions at Tech Collective on Tuesday, March 27th from 4-6 pm to discuss what an assembly of the right mix of people, process, and technologies might look like to combat this evolving threat landscape.
Many have undoubtedly read or heard at least one story in the media about the carnage wrought upon an organization at the hand of ransomware. Or that ransomware is coming for our children, our pets, and our precious metals. Many may have even heard of a vendor and a technology that solves the problem of ransomware in one swift silver-bulleted purchase. The trick with ransomware though, is that having a silver bullet is useless without the gun.
It could be argued that there are more dangerous threats than ransomware in the wild, but ransomware is loud and noisy about it. A malicious actor that has penetrated a network with an objective to steal critical information is not going to be quite so bold. However, the measures to protect our infrastructure and critical data sets are the same.
What ransomware has done, is shine a light on IT organizations as a whole. A light which shines bright on that fact that we may be behind in adopting a layered security approach with up-to-date best practices. And not only that, but that some of those best practices are now out of date, and they need to be updated.
