Blocking Ransomware Attacks with Anthony Cusimano
Ransomware attacks involve the deployment of malware that blocks access to a user’s or organization’s computer files by encrypting them. The attackers then demand a ransom payment in exchange for the decryption key that will restore access to the files. These attacks are often directed at governments and corporations, and can be costly.
Veeam is a data storage system that was designed specifically to provide protection against ransomware attacks. Object First is a system that works with Veeam to increase its safety and security.
Anthony Cusimano is the Director of Technical Marketing at Object First and he joins the podcast to talk about the growing sophistication of ransomware attacks and the emerging technologies to block them.

Miro is one of the platforms that I think has been really creative about how it’s incorporating AI. I created a dependency mapping on a Miro board to help think through a new software system. The idea was to visualize direct and indirect dependencies, and refine the connections between them.
The AI features helped summarize and cluster the information, making it easier to understand and work with. I’m also impressed with Miro AI’s ability to auto-generate images from text. This has a lot of value for software and product teams that need to do dynamic brainstorming and idea development.
Find simplicity in your most complex projects with Miro. Your first three Miro boards are free when you sign up today at miro.com/Podcast.
