"We are excited to share our experience and advice on ransomware and cyber extortion, including real-world case studies, in this practical and actionable guide."

LMG says that Ransomware and Cyber Extortion: Response and Prevention provides a list of actionable steps to take, and checklists so that security teams can be quick and decisive in their response and should be required reading for any CIOs, CISOs, cybersecurity professionals, IT Staff, or incident response managers among others.
