Cybereason to host CISO roundtable on ransomware attacks and the true business cost

Cybereason, a specialist in operation-centric attack protection, will host a virtual CISO Roundtable on Thursday, July 29th, 2021, 1:00 pm ET/6:00 pm BST. It will discuss the findings from the company’s recent global ransomware study, titled Ransomware: The True Cost to Business.

Among the report’s key findings are that 65% of organisations hit by a ransomware attack report significant revenue loss, and 80% of attack victims who paid the ransom demands were hit by a second ransomware attack.

The roundtable will bring together veteran security executives across the technology, government and finance services industries to examine these and other findings from the study. Discussion topics include:

  • Whether organisations should ever consider paying a ransom demand
  • If organisations have the right people, processes and policies in place to address the risk posed by ransomware attacks
  • The wide-reaching impacts to the business following a successful ransomware attack
  • Whether organisations are making the right investments in security prior to a ransomware attack and where they are investing after being a victim
