Malware and ransomware attacks have moved to the top of the list of events that most concern CIOs and IT staff. Successful attacks, such as data breaches, customer identity theft, and ransomware that results in payouts, can result in financial loss, reputational loss and embarrassment, significant regulatory fines, permanent loss of customers’ future business, and more.
IDC best practices recommend that organizations examine four areas in addressing malware:
- Detection technology.
- Integrated data protection solutions.
- Business and IT process training and awareness.
- Continuous review and continuous learning.
