Public Sector Tech Talk E25: Data Centric Security for the Public Sector
Hackers can do a lot of damage in just a few seconds. In 2020, ransomware attacks cost U.S. government organizations around $18.9 billion in terms of downtime and recovery costs. This includes destruction of data, theft of intellectual property, removal and restoration of compromised data and systems, unhappy constituents who were unable to access key infrastructure and government services, not to mention reputational harm. During this Public Sector Tech Talk, NetApp joins WWT to provide insight on how to secure and protect public sector organizations against today's top cybersecurity concerns, discuss trends in recent ransomeware attacks, and share best practices for protecting government agencies against malicious actors who intend to prevent the delivery of mission-critical services.
