Few industries are immune to the soaring risk of ransomware attacks, as malware variants spawn and mutate – with attackers using automated attacks to find vulnerabilities.

The healthcare sector is among those that has been particular hurt by this in the near past, with the WannaCry causing severe damage across the NHS in 2017.

Ransomware attacks soared 195 percent in the first half of 2019, and the threat remains severe, with a major European steelmaker, and provider of forensic services to the Metropolitan police among the companies badly affected this year.

In this webinar, Timo Weberskirch, an industry expert from Quest Software’s KACE team will take participants through the 5 key steps they need to take to improve security, including inventory management, automated patch deployment in critical sectors like healthcare, and ways to track, lock and wipe sensitive data from mobile devices.

He will guide participants through this process with a live demonstration of KACE’s tools and examples of best practice in the healthcare and other sectors, with a focus on:
