  1. Sophisticated Threat Landscape: Ransomware variants are constantly evolving, making detection and prevention a formidable task. We’ll discuss strategies to stay ahead of threat actors.
  2. Balancing Payment Dilemmas: Organizations often grapple with the decision of whether to pay the ransom. We’ll explore the ethical, legal, and financial considerations involved.
  3. Coordination with Stakeholders: Effective incident response requires seamless collaboration among internal teams, external partners, and service providers. We’ll emphasize the importance of coordination.
