Ransomware strikes fear in the hearts of IT professionals. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The fact is ransomware is far from invincible. In this Veritas Solution Day presentation, you will learn what it takes to neutralize the threat and impact of ransomware on your organization. It’s time to turn the tables on ransomware and start talking about what it is afraid of—a multi-layered, flexible, unified defense.

Join us for this special event covering a range of important topics, including:

  • Ransomware Resiliency—how to ensure your data is always protected, immutable, and recoverable.
  • Protect, Detect, and Recover Best Practices—why it matters to standardize your data protection on a single platform.
  • The Anatomy of a Ransomware Attack—hear how a global Veritas customer minimized disruption and avoided paying a ransom.

A ransomware attack is an inevitability for every large organization at this point. But that doesn’t mean we need to cower in fear of it. In this opening session, Greg Hughes, CEO of Veritas, shares some valuable insights gained from meeting and consulting with IT and business leaders from some of the world’s largest organizations and most recognizable brands.

  Subsection of Keynote 1: Microsoft’s Perspective on the Cybersecurity Landscape
Regulatory changes globally will raise the profile of cybersecurity to board members and senior leadership teams. You need to communicate strategy and risk in a way they understand. Cyber should also form part of disaster recovery and business continuity planning. If disaster strikes, it’s important to communicate quickly and clearly to avoid reputational damage. You will be judged and remembered on how you respond. This session outlines Microsoft's perspective, what they are hearing from their customers and how the Microsoft/Veritas partnership best protects organizations from these threats.
10:45 - 11:30 Keynote 2: Achieving Ransomware Immunity with Protect, Detect, and Recover Best Practices
80% of organisations* have invested in new cloud technologies since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and almost 40% of organizations feel their security is compromised. In this session, we’ll demonstrate our multi-layered approach, diving into technical best practices within the Protect, Detect, and Recover stages. Gain a clear understanding of how to mitigate the risk of ransomware and minimize the effects of an attack.
