COVID-19 On-Demand Webinar

On Demand: Ransomware Readiness - The ransomware threats that organizations are facing today have been continually evolving. Given the complex technology landscape, organizations struggle to effectively manage these risks with the limited cybersecurity skillsets and resources available to them. The mindset around cybersecurity at organizations has shifted from “if” a cyber event will occur to “when” it will happen, and they are struggling to effectively prepare to respond to when an incident occurs. The goal of this session with Mike Del Giudice, a Principal with Crowe LLP’s (Crowe) Consulting Group, is to discuss the evolving ransomware threats organizations are facing and how they are designed to infect an organization. We discuss potential solutions to better manage this risk (including in third party relationships), how to respond in the event of an incident and pragmatic strategies used by organizations to improve their cybersecurity posture.
