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.
