Ransomware continues to be one of the biggest threats to organizations worldwide, and it usually comes with a hefty price tag. With how easy ransomware is to deploy, it's truly a matter of when you get attacked. Colette Burke and Mitchell Bearry discuss what ransomware is, including the latest breaches in the news, followed by TraceSecurity's prescribed domains for Ransomware Preparedness: Prevention, Detection, and Response & Recovery. They also give an introduction of our new service, the Ransomware Preparedness Assessment.
