Webinar - Webinar Featuring AWS Will Address Ransomware Prevention


Cybersecurity is one of the key things that keep business executives, IT leaders, and world leaders up at night – and with good reason. The cost of business disruptions due to cyber attacks is in the neighborhood of $8 billion, reports estimate.




Mistakenly exposing personal data to unauthorized parties and/or failing to secure applications, content, data, and devices from online attackers can create real problems. That can impact an organization’s ability to do business. It may result in lost customers and tarnish an entity’s reputation. It often requires organizations to turn they attention from their core business goals and instead dedicate money and other resources to clean up the mess. And, of course, cybersecurity breaches and mistakes can even put elections and human life at stake.

Ransomware is one of the fastest growing and most troublesome forms of cybersecurity risk. The ransomware known as WannaCry cost companies about $10 million in ransom, some estimates suggest.

After an array of high-profile ransomware attacks, many organizations have woken up to the very real risk this presents. And they may be interested to know that leading cloud computing service provider Amazon Web Services (News - Alert) will be discussing ransomware prevention during an online event later this month.

The event is called “How Hatco Leverages AWS and Druva to Beat Ransomware”. It is targeted at IT and information security professionals at companies in North America with more than 1,000 employees. And it’s scheduled for Friday, Sept. 21 at 11 a.m. Pacific/2 p.m. Eastern.

Paul Sears, solutions architect at Amazon Web Services, is a featured speaker, along with Sarah Beaudoin, product marketing manager at Druva, and Aaron Bolthouse, manager of IT infrastructure at Hatco Corp., a Druva customer.

They explain what factors put your organization’s data at risk, what you can do to get access to your critical data during and after and attack, and strategies to protect your data.
