Ransomware Boardroom 16th June 2021 Geography of Focus: Saudi Arabia REQUEST AGENDA CONTACT US

Event Overview

Ransomware attacks are a growing threat, with 42% of companies reporting that they’ve faced at least one attack. On average, companies have 4.5 attacks. On May 13th 2021, as if dealing with COVID-19 was not enough, the Health Service of Ireland (HSE) began a battle with a different type of Virus. HSE CEO Paul Reid said it was “a sophisticated” attack, targeting information technology systems and data stored on central servers. The HSE stated it was a ‘day zero’ attack, meaning it was a new cyber virus that escaped past its virus defence system. This comes on the back of Colonial Pipeline who reportedly paid the hackers who shut down some of its networks.

A new global survey conducted by Wakefield Research and commissioned by Veritas Technologies, has determined that as this shift accelerates, resiliency planning has not kept pace, creating a significant resiliency gap. The research showed that Saudi Arabia businesses are concerned about growing IT complexity. 71% of Saudi Arabia respondents still said their enterprise’s security measures lag behind their IT complexitycompared to 64% worldwide

Join us for this presentation and gain valuable perspective on how to keep your business resilient against ransomware attacks. We’ll share key learnings from the research but that’s not all… Ever wonder what goes through a CEO’s mind when his Head of IT informs him they are under attack !  Listen to Martin Kelterborn,  Chief Executive of Offix Group, Switzerland talk about the tension, uncertainty and confusion, surrounding the Ransomware attack in May 2019.

“I went into my IT department and the manager was pale and clearly shocked. He told me everything had gone. We had tens of thousands of orders, but no computer systems to sort through them.. At one point we actually wrote a press release declaring that the company was dead and out of business. They were the worst three weeks of my life.”
