The topic of ransomware has gone from a technical concern of security professionals to a business risk discussed by the C-suite and Board of Directors. Ransomware, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, and DDoS combined with ransomware are all on the rise and are common topics in news cycles in both the business and technical press. Unfortunately, many companies as well as individuals have felt the pain of a ransomware attack coupled with a DDoS attack in an attempt by the adversary to speed negotiations.

Organizations with better security practices, policies, and procedures are by definition  more mature, more resilient, and lead with a security-first mindset. Building a resilient business is crucial for business continuity to deliver strong business outcomes.
