Ransomware and GDPR : transforming threats into opportunities

Watch on Demand Now!

There are few things more important to an organisation than the data they possess on themselves, their industry and their markets.

The more information you have, the better placed you are to capitalise on trends, make decisions and generate revenue. But as we have seen in recent months, there are threats and challenges that lie ahead.

Ransomware has the ability to cripple organisations by seizing this data, while the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will place additional demands and stiffen penalties if data is not handled correctly.

The financial impact of a breach can be significant, but so can the damage to your business and its reputation. But these challenges can also be opportunities as having the right policies and tools in place can not only protect your organisation but also give it greater visibility.

But is this an education versus technology issue? Should approaches be the same in Europe in the US? Is backup still the best defence?

In this webinar, Ransomware & GDPR: Transforming threats into opportunities, Steve McCaskill, editor of Silicon UK discusses the twin threats of GDPR and ransomware with Gregg Ogden and Patrick McGrath from data management experts Commvault to answer these questions and more.
