Ransomware: How to Reduce Your Likelihood of Being a Victim

Colonial Pipeline. JBS meat processor. Scripps Health. The list of recent high-profile ransomware victims is long and growing. So are the costs to recover from these crimes.

But what if you could take preventive steps to reduce your likelihood of becoming a ransomware victim? BitSight recently analyzed hundreds of ransomware incidents to identify common security performance gaps and challenges that lead to successful ransomware incidents. One finding: Poor patching performance is a strong indicator of increased risk to ransomware. In fact, organizations with less mature patching programs are 7x more likely to experience a ransomware incident.

Register for this executive roundtable for new insights and discussion about:

  • Sector-specific insights tied to recent ransomware trends
  • Vulnerabilities that indicate a heightened risk of ransomware
  • Programmatic areas to reduce the likelihood of being a ransomware victim
