A New Year's Ransomware Resolution


Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title

Sponsored by AXIO

2020 was a brutal year for ransomware. Cybercriminals operated without any human decency, targeting the most vulnerable and at-risk parties, such as hospitals, scientists, and global manufacturers. The approach has become more sophisticated and life-threatening, shifting from individual targets to global enterprises, destroying backups, blackmailing victims with public leakage of exfiltrated data, and paralyzing critical systems and infrastructure.

During this difficult time, Axio’s research and development team has been busy at work analyzing hundreds of real-world ransomware events. Our research is now complete, and we’d like to ring in 2021 with a New Year’s Ransomware Resolution.

Introducing the world’s first comprehensive ransomware assessment methodology available for free in the Axio360 Platform.

Please join Axio’s President and Co-Founder David White, and AIG’s Garin Pace, cyber product leader-financial lines and property, to see the world’s first comprehensive ransomware assessment platform in action. In this lively discussion, we will cover the following points:

• Ransomware is about big game hunting now
• Cybercriminals don’t care about human life
• There’s no guarantee your exfiltrated data won’t be exposed
• The best way to prepare is from a single point of truth
• How our ransomware assessment is based on hundreds of real world events
• How you can combine the learnings of world’s top analysts with DHS guidance
• Why you should evaluate your susceptibility based on fact patterns
• How you can get started with the Axio360 Free Ransomware Assessment
