John D. Beattie, FBCI, Principal Consultant | 11:11 Systems
About this talk
Ransomware and other forms of malicious cyberattacks are a top threat to IT availability; and generally speaking, to ongoing business viability. A key element to reducing business impact and downtime is having well thought out options, both IT and business led options for compromised data recovery that can be adapted and undertaken quickly to address the particulars of a successful ransomware attack.
Join us for this session that will shed some new insights on what it takes to reduce the risk of a failed data recovery effort.
Key takeaways include:
1. The IT and non-IT led approaches to data recovery (its far more than restoring from backups).
2. Determining what data is most worthy of advanced levels of protection and recoverability.
3. How to get the business community ready to do their part.
