Lares would like to take this opportunity to invite you to a new series of webinars on ransomware. The most common tactics hackers use to carry out ransomware attacks are email phishing campaigns, RDP vulnerabilities, and software vulnerabilities according to the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). In 2021, ransomware remediation costs globally rose from an average of $761,106 in 2020 to $1.85 million. That means that the average cost of recovering from a ransomware attack is now 10 times the size of the ransom payment.
This September, we will be presenting three webinars on various ransomware topics ranging from technical detection to executive program management.
Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021 at 1pm EDT: Preparing for Ransomware: Are You Ready? with Anton Ovrutsky and Lee Kagan
Wednesday, September 29th, 2021 at 1pm EDT: Ransomware Preparedness for the C-Suite with Andrew Hay
Wednesday, October 6th, 2021 at 1pm EDT: Ransomware Technical Deep Dive with Anton Ovrutsky and Lee Kagan
