Ransomware attacks don’t happen in the blink of an eye, despite what many think, says cybersecurity expert Nadir Izrael, chief technology officer (CTO) and co-founder of Armis. For weeks and months, bad actors will penetrate an organization, overriding and infecting different systems before the final attack.

In this Live at Vive episode of healthsystemCIO’s Partner Perspective Interview Series, Anthony Guerra, founder and editor-in-chief, interviews Izrael, who says good cyber-hygiene is an organization’s best defense. “The reality is that most attacks don’t happen with these super fancy, Zero-days that just came out. They happen with run-of-the-mill vulnerabilities that have existed for a long time and just old equipment,” he says.
