On-Demand Webinar

Ransomware has become an annual event for many organizations, costing them millions in lost productivity and revenue. While there have been some notable successes in fighting off this threat, the industry as a whole must continue strengthening its resolve in order to safeguard against future attacks. Part of this can come down to recognizing the role that users and employees play in fighting off these attacks and providing them with info and tools they need to help reduce risks. 

The recent ransomware attack against Accenture is yet another illustration of the notion that, big or small, no one is safe.

“Accenture is a well-respected company that I am sure is spending an exorbitant amount of money on security but they have a lot of ground to cover. It’s very hard to protect a multi-national company like Accenture…If a $45 billion company like Accenture is vulnerable then everyone is vulnerable,” Michael Goldstein

No matter the size of your company, a people-centric approach to fighting back against ransomware attacks is one of the best ways to combat this growing plague to businesses. The good news is that there are many options available based on each organization’s budget. From keeping your employees and users educated on the risks to implementing a robust employee monitoring program, a multi-layered people-centric program is the only way to effectively defend against attacks.

These principles can be used by organizations of any size in their efforts to fight back against ransomware.
