Watch the on-demand webinar

The past year has proven to be a challenging time for many organizations, having to extend their infrastructure to support remote working and to open multiple channels to engage and service their clients and business partners.

Many of these innovations can present inherent security risks as businesses are forced to quickly adapt their IT infrastructure to adjust to new challenges.

This webinar on demand will explore the theme of cyber security, with expert speakers from AMCS and Microsoft and address the following questions:

  • What is the level of risk exposure of a conventional on-premise application?
  • Why are cloud solutions inherently more secure in protecting against evolving cyber-attacks?
  • How does the strategic partnership between AMCS and Microsoft benefit our customers in terms of protection from attacks?
  • Why should you consider investment in a SaaS based Platform now to protect your business?

2021 Global Cyber Attack Trends Infographic

Teams that support CFOs and boards must understand the significant threats out there. For example, an intrusion or data leak costs far more to recover from than defending against it in the first place.

Even low-level criminals launch attacks. All they need is $66 to buy “Ransomware kits” on the dark web. The cost of downtime due to these attacks can be up to 50 times higher than the actual ransom demand. In 2021, the average cost of that downtime amounted to $4.42 million*.

Don’t underestimate the costs of reputational damage or regulatory fines involved.

Cyber Attacks – What is at stake and how to protect yourself with world class solutions?

While cyber-attacks in our industry may not make national headlines, they are a real and growing threat as evidenced by the 150% growth in ransomware attacks in the past twelve months(1)

The majority of these attacks involve e-mail phishing to steal user credentials and ransomware.

No companies are immune from this threat as these attacks are increasingly sophisticated and automated at scale and designed to attack companies of all sizes.
