Cybereason to host CISO Roundtable on the impact of ransomware attacks

Cybereason will be hosting a virtual CISO Roundtable tomorrow, Thursday, July 29, 2021, 1:00 pm ET/6:00 pm BST, to discuss the findings from the company’s recent global ransomware study, titled Ransomware: The True Cost to Business. Among the report’s key findings are that 65% of organisations hit by a ransomware attack report significant revenue loss, and 80% of attack victims who paid the ransom demands were hit by a second ransomware attack.

The roundtable will reportedly bring together veteran security executives across the technology, government and finance services industries to examine these and other findings from the study.

Discussion topics will be; whether organisations should ever consider paying a ransom demand, if organisations have the right people, processes and policies in place to address the risk posed by ransomware attacks, the wide-reaching impacts to the business following a successful ransomware attack and whether organisations are making the right investments in security prior to a ransomware attack and where they are investing after being a victim.

Speakers at the roundtable will include; Sam Curry, Chief Security Officer at Cybereason (host), Todd Fitzgerald, Vice President, Cybersecurity Strategy at Cybersecurity Collaborative (host), Frank Johnson, Former CIO for the City of Baltimore, Kerissa Varma, CISO Old Mutual Limited and Bryan Hurd, Chief of Office, Cyber Seattle.
