In 2017, WannaCry, one of the most infamous ransomware attacks, took over businesses, government agencies, and individual systems – knocking them offline and holding their files for ransom. In the federal arena, these types of attacks can completely shutdown government networks, rendering day-to-day work obsolete, and can also be fodder for negative press headlines.

In this episode of the Digital Transformation for Government Podcast Series, we are speaking with Kurt Steege, Chief Technology Officer at ThunderCat Technology and Mike Malaret, Sales Engineering Director, US Public Sector Sales, Defense and Intel Communities at Veritas, about how federal IT and cyber employees can best protect their agencies from ransomware attacks.
