On Thursday, August 26 at 11 am CST, Kurtis Minder (Ransomware Negotiator and CEO of GroupSense) takes you behind the scenes to get exclusive access and insight into what happens after a ransomware attack.

According to a former senior White House official, 2020 was the year that ransomware went from being a nuisance to a full-scale national security threat.

After an awkward adolescence spent shaking down individual users for a couple of hundred dollars, it made a big splashy debut in 2017 with WannaCry and NotPetya. By 2020, ransomware had really hit the big time, with ransom payments topping $400 million-plus in that year alone. However, those sums are nothing compared to the damage that ransomware campaigns can cause—especially when they hit critical infrastructure like the recent Colonial Pipeline disaster.

  • Malicious emails are up 600% since Q1 2020 (ABC News)
  • The largest ransomware demand and payout to date is $40 million (Business Insider)
  • Ransomware-as-a-Service is on the rise, with average demands increasing by 33% since 2019 (Bank Info Security)
  • The average downtime after a ransomware attack is 21 days (Coveware)

As ransomware continues to subvert and cripple enterprises in the U.S. and Europe, companies must do everything they can to prevent an attack and prepare to remediate.

Companies of all sizes are at risk, from small businesses to the enterprise. Even as the threat environment evolves, technologies and strategies are emerging to meet the demand. In this exclusive webinar, Kurtis Minder, CEO of GroupSense and ransomware negotiator, takes you behind the scenes of a ransomware attack to show you where it starts, how it infiltrates your systems, and what happens next.

This interactive webinar invites you to join the conversation and get your ransomware questions answered.

“Ransomware is the biggest threat businesses face today. It is absolutely critical for organizations to take preventative steps to prevent these types of attacks. The time is now.” ~ Mark Coltharp, Executive VP Client Solutions, Zyston
