Mimecast / NEC XON on Zoom

Join us as we hear from the cybersecurity experts from the Mimecast and NEC XON teams, to explore the South African findings during this webinar

60% of companies were hurt by a ransomware attack, up from 47% according to Mimecast’s 2022 State of Email Security Report.

South Africans experienced an average of nearly 11 days of downtime due to ransomware attacks. Of course, time is money and that means ransomware can cost a company dearly.

In the face of all this, most companies are urgently seeking to inoculate themselves against ransomware and other email-borne threats. Their efforts to date, however, have been uneven.

Use the insights from Mimecast’s 2022 State of Email Security Report and Experts to help you deliver continuous improvements to your cyber resilience strategy.
