clock • 1 min read

Ransomware is a major threat, but it is possible to fight back

The first day of the inaugural Cybersecurity Festival was a great success, revolving around the past, present and - especially - future of digital security. Ransomware is a topic that hits all three of those stages, and was the subject of a presentation by Javvad Malik of KnowBe4.

Ransomware is a top security risk for businesses of all shapes and sizes. It's evolving at a rapid pace, and has driven a string of high profile attacks over the past several months - the outcomes of which, nobody would have believed possible.

Ransomware attacks cause downtime, data loss and possible intellectual property theft. In some industries, an attack is even considered a data breach.

With all this bad news, the good news is that you can still learn how to prevent ransomware before it affects your network.

In this session - a Q&A with Computing's Tom Allen - Javvad shared practical advice and provided key takeaways of how you can defend your organisation from the ongoing ransomware threat.
