Ransomware has grown from a minor nuisance in the marketplace to a full-fledged weapon of cyber destruction for which all organizations need to prepare and plan. 2016 brought us a reported 638 million ransomware attacks, up a stunning 16689% from the 3.8 million reported ransomware attacks in 2015. With the global cases of WannaCry and NotPetya, you can be sure the number has gone up further in 2017. Ransomware is scary enough by itself, but it’s also one of the fastest growing cybercrime-as-a-business sectors. You don’t even have to be a technical “hacker” anymore; you can simply purchase ransomware from another bad guy, attach to some emails, and you can start raking in the BitCoins. It’s a little more complicated than that, but not by much. The Internet can be a pretty scary place these days if you don’t know how to protect yourself.
In this webinar, we’ll explore how ransomware works, what you can do to prevent ransomware from taking your network hostage, and ways to recover if you’ve been affected by ransomware already.
This webinar will cover the following:
- The current state of cyber threats
- Identifying different types of ransomware and and how they propagate across networks
- Understanding how ransomware works on your network
- Ransomware-as-a-Service – what is that?
- Controls to mitigate the risk of a ransomware attack: Make better decisions around mitigating controls to reduce the risk of ransomware on your network
- How to recover from a ransomware attack
