Ransomware attackers are increasingly targeting small and medium-sized (SMB) businesses as they struggle to defend against outbreaks due to lack of resources, no security operations center (SOC) or security expertise, and little time for dedicated investigation and response.

Join Cerium Networks’ Scott Nelson, Director of Cybersecurity, along with Blumira’s CTO and Co-Founder Matthew Warner, and Content Marketing Manager, Erica Mixon, as they go through 5 practical tips that small IT and security teams can use to defend themselves against ransomware, using the resources they have today.

The financial impact of a ransomware attack on an SMB can be debilitating. IT and security teams will learn how to detect and respond to suspicious activity quickly enough to prevent an infection.

In this roundtable, our experts will discuss:

  • Challenges that small IT and security teams face when defending against ransomware
  • Practical solutions to those challenges that don’t require extra budget or expertise
  • How organizations can respond early enough to prevent a ransomware infection from inflicting real damage
  • How Blumira helps small teams easily monitor, identify and get alerted about attacker behavior
