  • The data security landscape is shifting as organizations embrace SaaS-based applications, public cloud services, data analytics platforms, and AI/ML workloads. Unfortunately, such progress has been met by a resurgence of ransomware attacks and a record-breaking number of data breach disclosures. In light of these revelations, new consumer privacy protection acts have imposed heavier financial penalties, leading to changes in the cybersecurity insurance marketplace and how organizations measure potential risk. Register for the free Data Security Risks and Challenges summit to learn about the latest changes in data security and explore new technologies designed to protect data and customers.

The newer and more treacherous modern threat landscape forces organizations to take a second look at cyber insurance and the security it can ensure against fallout from an attack. Join the upcoming Ransomware Preparedness: Strategies for a Secure Future summit to hear leading experts discuss actionable strategies to prevent ransomware attacks, mitigate damage, and select the best cyber insurance option for your organization.
