Ransomware

Here's what you need to know

One CEO told me he'd had his bags packed. He'd told his board, just four weeks earlier that his company was secure. 

And then... they'd been brought to their knees, completely shut down by ransomware. The company was offline for four days before he knew how bad things were, how they were going to restore the company to operation, and how they would protect themselves from future attacks. Yes, there is anti-ransomware.

Home Depot can afford a $179 million loss, but could you?
