Government entities face a plethora of cybersecurity challenges. Ransomware, especially against critical infrastructure, is of the utmost importance to protect against. Because traditional cybersecurity solutions leave governments in reactive mode, many agencies are underprepared for the challenge.
Join this discussion with Virsec's Kevin Jones, and Osterman Research's Michael Sampson, to explore the current state of cybersecurity threats, preparedness, and protection capability in the government sector. Learn how Virsec can help protect your agency against ransomware attacks that target runtime. We'll share how Virsec Security Platform takes a deterministic approach to protect software, locking out the attacker before they can execute their malicious intent.
