The Cost of Doing Nothing: A Ransomware Backup Story

Once again, I had the chance to present on the topic of ransomware with Redmond Magazine, as this continues to be a hot topic! Quest software’s John O’Boyle and I did what we could to summarize the current state of ransomware in a Microsoft-based environment and provide real-life experiences and advice for dealing with this type of malware. While we had a great turnout, I’m sure some of you missed it, so I invite you to view the offline recording below:

This week I had a chance to meet with Mimecast’s Strategic Technical Consultant and fellow Microsoft MVP J. Peter Bruzzese to discuss the need or possible lack thereof 3rd party add-on solutions to Office 365 in a webcast this week. This is familiar territory to both J. Peter and I so we had no trouble jumping right into a lively discussion!
