Think your backups will protect you from ransomware? What do you think the malware attacked first?

Immutablity or vulnerability – it’s your choice


Webcast If you think your backup strategy means you’re protected from the worst that cyber-criminals can throw at you, we’ve got some bad news. Ransomware creators know all about backups, too.

So, if you are unlucky enough to get a “pay up or else” notice, there’s a very good chance that the attacker in question has already been stealthily working their way through your systems for some time, ensuring your recovery data has already been comprehensively trashed.

Which means that a speedy recovery is off the table, and that you, your organization, and possibly your customers, suppliers, and partners are all totally are the mercy of the miscreants.

Adopting a defence in depth approach is part of the solution, and everyone should be doing this anyway. But what if you could ensure that your backups were indeed beyond the reach of attackers, ensuring your organisation is able to bounce back from ransomware and other attacks, with timely, complete data?

Well, good news. That’s just what we’ll be discussing in our upcoming webcast, Don’t Pay the Bad Guys, which will be dropping onto a screen near you on February 23 at 1100 GMT (12 noon CET).

Our own ever-bounce-back-able Tim Phillips will be joined by Nicholas Groh of Rubrik, who will explain why the choice to rely on your backups doesn’t have to be fraught with risk. Nicholas will be explaining how an immutable backup strategy can ensure recovery is quick and painless.

Together they’ll discuss how end-to-end encryption can ensure backups really are immutable.

They’ll also discuss how this can be combined with early detection of ransomware, and fast remediation, to ensure that recovery can be achieved quickly and with minimal data loss. Because knowing exactly what applications and files are affected will make recovery that bit easier.

Joining this webcast is straightforward. Just sign up here and we’ll update your calendar and nudge you on the day.

Whether you’ve got a nagging feeling that your data is exposed, or simply want to make sure your backup strategy is up to snuff, you’ll gain a better appreciation of both the risks and the ways in which you can minimize them.
