In recent months, supply chain attacks have made headlines and wreaked havoc across businesses. These attacks, which often use ransomware, can impact thousands of organizations by targeting a single company. In a recent case, an IT Management Software company suffered a ransomware attack which impacted as many as 1,500 small businesses that rely on the company’s software. In another case, thousands of oil-reliant companies were disrupted as a ransomware attack shut down the fuel supply for a major US pipeline. So, what does this mean for your security program? What are the implications on the security industry as a whole? And more specifically, how does the rise of ransomware impact your vendor risk management strategy?
Join our session as we breakdown the impact a ransomware hack can have, explore its impact on modern cybersecurity, and outline how businesses can protect themselves and their vendors from falling victim to large-scale attacks in the future.
