Episode 202 Deep Dive: Kavitha Mariappan | No Sector Is Safe: The Importance of Ransomware Awareness and Protection Across Industries
First Aired: August 16, 2023

In this episode of KBKast, we are joined by Kavitha Mariappan, as we dove deep into the ever-evolving sophistication of ransomware attacks and consequently, the growing importance of budget and resource allocation for cybersecurity, strategy reassessments, and intentional actions based on cybersecurity reports, such as Zscaler’s 2023 Ransomware Report. We discuss how no sector is exempt from attacks, and that while historically, industries like finance and healthcare are targeted, arts, entertainment, education, manufacturing, and even the maritime sector are not immune. Organizations across these industries must recognize the value of information they hold and take steps to protect it.

Kavitha Mariappan is Executive Vice President of Customer Experience and Transformation at Zscaler. With more than 20 years of technology and go-to-market experience, she is responsible for driving transformation and innovation across all facets of the company’s business, customers, strategy, products, and operations
