Restoring quickly from a ransomare attack with a long dwell time (Restore it All Podcast #123)

We talk to Celeste Kinswood from Druva about cyber resilience, and specifically ransomware attacks that have long dwell times – which is most of them. The median dwell time (the time between infection and you finding out you have ransomware) is 23 days, and the average is around 90. It’s encrypting files during that entire time, and responding to that is beyond difficult. Celeste talks about a novel approach that Druva is taking to solve this growing challenge.
