Webcast Slide Deck | Ransomware has gone nuclear

Avoid becoming the next victim

Published May 2020


These slides support a webcast brought to you by The Register and sponsor KnowBe4.

We’ve been hearing about ransomware for a few years now. You might even know a company that has been a victim and quietly paid up, and you might even know someone who’s told you not to worry. “It’s OK if you have a good backup,” they say.

Well, think again. In the last few months, ransomware has gone nuclear. There is a reason more than half of today’s ransomware victims end up paying up. A new generation of attackers are crafting plans to cause the most panic, pain, and operational disruption. They will take the time to maximize your organization’s potential damage and also their payoff -- not just encrypting your data, but stealing it and posting it publicly if you don’t play ball.

Join Roger Grimes from KnowBe4 and Tim Phillips from The Reg for a live RegCast in which they will be sounding the ransomware emergency klaxon. They will take your questions on:

  • How sophisticated ransom attacks are stealing your data and what they do with it
  • Why your data backups alone can't protect you from nuclear ransomware
  • And, most important, how to protect yourself from the new nuclear threat
