Ransomware has been blasting news feeds on a daily basis for years. Each article details the story of an organisation that can no longer access their business critical data. Where the attackers have crippled their victims by encrypting access to production files and storage devices. Whilst cyber security teams have invested in a myriad of protection tools, extortionists continue to find new mechanisms to encrypt organisations’ data.

Rubrik 28.04 Recovering Fast From Ransomware Attacks


Wednesday 28th April

Event Timings:

BST: 10am - 11am

WET: 11am - 12pm


Backups are one of the most – if not the most – important defense against ransomware. But if subject to corruption, attackers will use it against you.

Advanced ransomware is now targeting backups – modifying or completely wiping them out – eliminating your last line of defense and driving large ransom payouts.

Rubrik’s uniquely immutable filesystem natively prevents unauthorised access or deletion of backups, allowing IT teams to quickly restore to the most recent clean state with minimal business disruption.

Join this webinar to hear how Rubrik’s one-of-a-kind immutable architecture and robust security controls will protect your data from cyber attacks.

In this webinar these are the key takeaway points for the audience:

- Strengthen your ransomware response strategy by increasing visibility into the scope of attack.

- Quickly pinpoint which applications and files were impacted and where they reside to further minimise business impact.

- Ensure minimal downtime of critical services.

- Choose a product with a truly immutable architecture to give you peace of mind.

Format: 45 minute presentation, 15 minute live audience Q&A
